W.I.N. Wednesday: Lessons From Life's Most Powerful Question - It's simple. Just quit.
In my presentations on The Pursuit of Personal Excellence I talk about the concept of Simple versus Easy. I define Simple as the lack of complexity and Easy as the lack of effort. In the following quote Thomas Watson breaks the path to excellence down to its simplest strategy:
"If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today. As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work."
Thomas J. Watson
Take a few moments and reflect on your life. Where are you doing less than excellent work?
Now ask yourself why? It is a lack of effort? Is it your attitude towards the project, the people or the mission? Is fear (of success, failure, change, or the unknown) getting in the way?
What's Important Now? - Once you have answered the above questions then simply follow Watson's advice and quit doing less-than-excellent work. It's simple, but it is not easy.
