“Do the best you can in every task, no matter how unimportant it may seem at the time.”

I decided long ago that anything I was going to do in my life, I was going to give it 110%. I never wanted to put my name on something that I couldn`t feel proud of doing. And I felt that if I wasn’t willing to give something my all then why even do it?  I can tell you that sticking to that commitment in my life is something that has helped me tremendously.  I honestly believe that anyone who decides to make that commitment in their life will find great success comes in their future because of it.

Someone once stated, “If you don’t have time to do it right the first time, how will you ever have time to do it again?”   That quote stuck with me because I realized how true it actually was.  If I wanted to avoid redoing something I should really take care to do a great job going into it and give it a full effort.  No cutting corners.  No being sloppy.  Just doing it right from the get go.  When I look around me at the people I trust the most it is the people that have adopted the philosophy of giving everything 110% in all they do.  They are the people that check their own work for accuracy, making sure they can feel good about things before the hand it off to someone else, and these are the people I fought to retain in my company because as a CEO that is exactly the type of person you want to have working for you.  Over my years as an entrepreneur I had several employees that I took with me from company to company because they were so good that I hired them on everywhere I went.  That is the kind of employee I think everyone should try to become –  The type that their boss would take them with them anywhere and for any position, because they are just that good and reliable to do an awesome job at everything you give them.  You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be giving it your all every day, no matter how small or unimportant the task may be – still treat it as if it’s the most important task you will ever do and I can promise you that people will take notice of you and the work you do!

That is today’s challenge – GIVE EVERYTHING YOU DO 110%. No matter how big or small, give it your all!  (hey I just made a rhyme – and it was an accident – how cool is that – what a great way to start a week!  With an accidental rhyme 🙂 .

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
