Good Wednesday Morning D13!
Last night I asked my 4 year old son to run into my office and grab my pencil for me because we were hanging some things in the baby’s room.
He said, “Dad I don’t want to, that’s not fun.”
I looked at him and said, “Enjoying it isn’t a requirement of doing it Boston. Run grab my pencil please.”
He did, and then he got a thank you and a high five!
“Most people have a desire to look for the exception instead of the desire to be exceptional.”
The exception is the easy way out. We’re all smart, and we can easily find (or create) an exception if we look.
“I’ve just been busy”
“I’m trying, they’re just not buying”
“It’s been slow”
“It doesn’t work in MY store”
“My customers are different here”
When we DO the things that we’re supposed to do, and quit looking for that easy way out (the excuse) we will win more!
My leaders don’t ask me to do things that don’t work.
The company doesn’t tell us do to things that cause us to lose.
I don’t teach you things that are made up.
All the tactics work. All the behaviors work. All the wisdom is true.
It’s when you drop your STUBBORNNESS or SKEPTICISM and allow yourself to evolve that we make movement.
That movement is GROWTH and it’s right in front of us when we place the value on being exceptional, instead of looking for exceptions.
