Quote from the show:
Chuck Swindoll: “If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.”*
*Kyle actually ran out of time and wasn’t able to share the quote that Daria selected on this video

Kyle’s gift to Daria:
– The book “Good to Great” by Jim Collins http://www.jimcollins.com/article_topics/articles/good-to-great.html
