AIM FOR THE BULL'S EYE

"If you don’t seek perfection,
you can never reach excellence."

The level of people’s expectations has a great deal to do with the results they achieve. Don Shula’s vision of perfection for the football team he coached was to win every game. Was that possible? No, but the 1972 Miami Dolphins did it for a season—established a level of perfection that no other NFL team has ever matched.

Don’s philosophy is that if you’re shooting at a target, you’re better off aiming at the bull’s-eye because if you miss it, the chances are high you’ll still be on the target.
