Creates a matcher that will match the given input against this pattern.
Returns this pattern's match flags.
Compiles the given regular expression and attempts to match the given input against it.

An invocation of this convenience method of the form

behaves in exactly the same way as the expression

If a pattern is to be used multiple times, compiling it once and reusing it will be more efficient than invoking this method each time.

Splits the given input sequence around matches of this pattern.

The array returned by this method contains each substring of the input sequence that is terminated by another subsequence that matches this pattern or is terminated by the end of the input sequence. The substrings in the array are in the order in which they occur in the input. If this pattern does not match any subsequence of the input then the resulting array has just one element, namely the input sequence in string form.

The parameter controls the number of times the pattern is applied and therefore affects the length of the resulting array. If the limit is greater than zero then the pattern will be applied at most -1 times, the array's length will be no greater than , and the array's last entry will contain all input beyond the last matched delimiter. If is non-positive then the pattern will be applied as many times as possible and the array can have any length. If is zero then the pattern will be applied as many times as possible, the array can have any length, and trailing empty strings will be discarded.

The input , for example, yields the following results with these parameters:

Splits the given input sequence around matches of this pattern.

This method works as if by invoking the two-argument method with the given input sequence and a limit argument of zero. Trailing empty strings are therefore not included in the resulting array.

The input , for example, yields the following results with these expressions:

Returns a literal pattern for the specified .

This method produces a that can be used to create a that would match the string as if it were a literal pattern.

Metacharacters or escape sequences in the input sequence will be given no special meaning.

Examples like this in the corporate world are remarkable. They cut against the grain of everything we have come to expect from large companies. Against the standard of mediocrity, companies like Headsets.com, Zappos.com, and others (Netflix comes to mind), these companies have decided to actually be excellent.

What the Normalization of Mediocrity Means for You

JUST GOOD ENOUGH – If you have a mediocre product or service to offer the world, you are not alone. Your business might fail, but it also might succeed as long as you do something slightly different. Excellence is no longer required.

SLIGHTLY BETTER – If you can slightly edge out mediocrity, like Southwest Airlines has done, then your chances of success are even higher. People will look at you with fresh eyes, and some of them will even become intensely loyal.

EXCELLENT – But of course, the most interesting way is to truly go above and beyond both the new standard of good enough and the slightly better standard. If you can be truly remarkable , and actually do something good… then you can rule the world.

Zappos.com sells shoes on the internet. How boring is that? But this year they are on track to become a billion-dollar company.

And what about you?

Yes, I know that many of us don’t work in cubicles, for all kinds of good reasons. But because most corporations are so mediocre, we can all learn from the rare examples when they do something right.

Do you long for excellence in a world where mediocrity has been normalized?

In your own life and work, do you strive to provide excellence to others, or have you fallen into the same trap?

Great article. This is all true, and so sad. Thanks for the little push to rise above the norm.

Not everyone can excel at things. Otherwise excellence would be normal. Some people must be average. A lot of people are getting depressed over trying to achieve excellence and falling short of that mark in comparison with other people.

I guess you can achieve your own brand of excellence, but we can’t compare ourselves with everyone else. Average is good.

@Asrai—I really like what you said about “achieving your own brand of excellence.” That’s recalls Don Miguel Ruiz’ 4th Agreement: Always Do Your Best. Importantly, Ruiz goes on to say that ‘your best’ changes all the time.

For example, your best when you’re sick will differ from your best when you’re healthy. For me, my early morning best is far different from my late night best! Ruiz doesn’t seem to subscribe to the idea of comparing to each other, or even to ourselves. For him, it appears that excellence is a measure of the moment.
