Construction jobs in Kenya. Excellence is a drive from inside, not outside

If all construction jobs in Kenya could be executed with excellence the way this sculptor does then no life could ever be lost in Kenya

A guy from Murang’a County  once visited a temple under construction where he saw a sculptor making a sculpture.

Suddenly he noticed a similar sculpture lying nearby. Surprised, he asked the sculptor, “Do you need two statues of the same?”
”No,” said the sculptor without looking up, “We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage.”

The gentleman examined the sculpture and found no apparent damage. “Where is the damage?” he asked.
“There is a scratch on the nose of the idol. ”Said the sculptor, still busy with his work.

“Where are you going to install the idol?”
The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar twenty feet high.

“If the idol is that far, who is going to know that there is a scratch on the nose?” the gentleman asked.

The sculptor stopped his work, looked up at the gentleman, smiled and said,
“I will know it”.
The desire to excel is exclusive of the fact whether someone else appreciates it or not.

“Excellence” is a drive from inside, not outside.
Excellence is not for someone else to notice but for your own satisfaction and efficiency…
