Are excellence and contentment at odds with one another?

“Contentment is the strength hopes give us to pursue the unsatisfied life in a satisfied way.”  –Greg Spencer

Are excellence and contentment at odds with one another?  On one hand you desire to do everything you possibly can to be all God has called you to.  On the other hand you must be at peace with His will.  Excellence is not wrong, quite the contrary, however our attitudes as we pursue it often times can be.  

Today’s prayer: May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope  (Romans 15:13, ESV).
