As we approach our end of year deadlines, stress levels are often high and it is easy to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. From yearend deadlines to overall stress from the holiday season, people everywhere are on high alert and when stress is high, it can lead to miscommunication and frustration. Perhaps now more than ever it is important to recognize that we are not the only ones feeling this pressure.
True professionals maintain their composure, no matter what time of year. To stand out from the rest and to be EXTRAordinary, especially at year end, we need to put in that little bit extra.
Sometimes all it takes is that Extra Degree. So for this week’s blog post I want to give you that little extra push to be EXTRAoridnary. That’s why I chose to share with you the 212º The Extra Degree video by Simple Truths. It is a Simple Truths #1 bestseller and the concept is simple: At 211º, water is hot. At 212º, it boils. And with boiling water comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive. So, at 211º the locomotive is standing still yet with that one extra degree it moves forward; that on extra degree makes all the difference.
This analogy reflects the ultimate definition of excellence. The one extra degree of effort, in business and life, can separate the ordinary from the EXTRAordinary. The 212º concept can be applied to every aspect of your life.
So now, ask yourself, what can you do to bring that extra degree to your team, your clients and yourself, and to help bring you to the next level of success?
How can you gain that ONE extra degree to attain your goals?
