Definition – Performing a job or assignment as well as you possibly can.
Mentor Student Discussion
All you can ever expect of your self is to do your best, no more, and no less.
People who fail to give their best are cheating both themselves and those who count on them.
There is never any good reason for not doing your best, because all it requires is that you try. We can never guarantee success, in fact great people fail a lot, because they try difficult things. The ultimate measure of success is the knowledge that you gave it all you had. Do that you will never be ashamed.
Doing your best means finishing the job right.
Doing your best means to work hard without complaint
Doing your best means you want to succeed.
Mentors and students should discuss examples of people not doing there best. How do you feel when a teammate give a halfhearted effort and your team looses? Or when your brother or sister are asked to do some chores with you and they refuse to do their part?
Mentors and students should discuss examples from their own life of how doing their best on some job really paid off, and the feeling of satisfaction that came with it.
Mentors and students should try to come up with three tasks that they can commit to “doing their best” at.
PD should ask the students to define “doing your best”
Ask students to give several examples of how they can do there best at school or at home.
You feel good about yourself when you have done your best, regardless of whether you won or lost. There is never a good excuse for not giving something your best shot.
