FEATURE: I have set down a challenge. It is my contention excellence – the language of excellence and the attitude that accompanies it – does not feature prominently, if at all, in the South African public mind. In its place sits mediocrity, accommodated and protected. If we are to change that, we need to start talking about excellence, what it means and entails. And so I have set it out. What I think a commitment to excellence looks like. Read it. Share it. Tell me if you agree with it. Imagine a South Africa that embraced it. Let’s start a conversation about excellence and win back from mediocrity that which it has stolen from us.
