A guy in a Fedex uniform comes on stage. This is Jimmy The Fedex Guy.
JIMMY THE FEDEX GUY: I deliver.
Morning, afternoon, night, even after hours... I deliver.
In the pouring rain, with a flat tire, when there's fire on the highway and the side roads are all blocked... I deliver.
On weekends, holidays, even Christmas, when everybody's home with their families under a tree... I deliver.
To private homes, nursery homes, prisons, schools and any other place you can think of... I deliver.
They say 'don't shoot the messenger.' And lemme tell you... they are right. Don't shoot the messenger 'cause who will deliver then?! Y'all NEED the messenger. Don't tell me otherwise. And don't shoot me either, cause... I deliver.
My pa always said 'son. Whatever you do... you be good at that. You be best at it. You do it right. You master whatever it is that you do.' And you know what he did? That's right: he delivered.
Mastery isn't only in paintings, or science inventions, or economics. Mastery is being best at doing the thing that you do, day after day, in sickness or health, 'till death or retirement do you part. Mastery is marriage. Is commitment. Is a vow to yourself, to excell, to master, to... you got it: to deliver.
