Do one more thing each day before you shut it down. There are approximately 260 working days per year. Do the math. Success is an acquired taste but one that you will come to enjoy if you will get in the habit of doing just a bit more each day.
It is by no means easy but nothing great ever is. Stay focused on creating an authentic experience and you too can differentiate yourself amongst all the other poor souls waiting for something to happen.
It is about progress not perfection!
“Advancement only comes with habitually doing more than you are asked”-Gary Ryan Blair
I have been able to identify patterns of the times in my life that I have grown the most both personally and professionally. The majority of those times were a result of some kind of “setback”‘,’ maybe even a series of them. I have come to appreciate those times more now than in years past for the lessons learned along the way. I have discovered that part of the “secret sauce” for well accomplished people is how they view failure. The “great ones” see failure as a learning experience not a defeat. Do yourself a favor and read that sentence again! Failure is a part of the success equation. If you are not failing then you are far too comfortable and are not taking any risks. Successful people are grinders! They will never be out-worked regardless of the weather, the competition or the economy.
Choose to lead by becoming a grinder.
A simple fill in the blank for creating a remarkable service, partnership or experience:
“I was pleased that I got what I paid for, that the food was properly cooked, that they honored their contract, that the roller coaster worked, that there was no trash on the ground and that the staff looked me in the eye.
But what really blew me away was _____”
By definition, whatever goes in the blank is an extra, more than you had to do. But what you must do to be considered remarkable. (Remarkable is what we call something we remark on).
Let’s try it.
