GO THE EXTRA MILE- Why it Matters…

This is a great message (from Jim Jackson) of why your work matters and more importantly…when you do your work–do it with compassion, 110% effort, and far beyond average.  YOU ARE NOT AVERAGE- so BE EXCEPTIONAL now- and LIVE that way by your actions!

The law of uncommon results: If you want uncommon results, you have to do common things in uncommon ways.

“It is safe to stay in the middle of the pack.  If you are average no one complains about you or expects too much of you.  Mediocrity has its rewards.  But you never find out what you are capable of.

Here is the problem: some people expect uncommon results from common effort.  And they are usually disappointed.  If you want uncommon results, you have to do common things in uncommon ways.

By “common things” I mean doing the basic things with excellence.  Think football: blocking and tackling and second efforts, not trick plays or looking good coming out of the huddle.

By “uncommon ways” I mean creativity, enthusiasm and going beyond anything that could reasonably be expected.  Again, think football: covering for the mistakes of other players, improvising to get open or playing while hurt.

People who do common things in uncommon ways achieve uncommon results.”
