One of the rarest things that a man ever does is to do the best he can.
Im sure youve been to a restaurant and were the recipient of lackluster service on occasion. All of us know all too well how that story goes. Instead of enjoying your lunch or dinner, the slipshod service begins to detract from your dining experience. Before long, the sorry service had taken over the entire show leaving you with nothing but a bad taste in your mouth.
But Im also just as certain that you have enjoyed fabulous dining experiences that were nothing short of superb. On these exceptional occasions, you begin noticing that the wait person is not just providing good service, but he or she seems to be going well beyond the norm. With you and your guests being treated to super special service, the entire dining experience becomes super special itself. In this brief but memorable moment, quality rules.
Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.
William A. Foster
Doesnt that seem a little odd? After all, you would think that outstanding service would be the general rule of thumb, particularly in a service oriented field like the restaurant industry. Unfortunately, thats just not the case any more. Top notch quality, regardless of whether were talking about eating establishments, other businesses or our every day interactions with others, is rapidly becoming a relic of a bygone era. And thats truly a shame.
Oh sure, quality still happens every so often. But one thing is for sure, it never happens by accident. And whenever people see quality in action, they sit up and take notice. Big time notice! Regardless of whether it comes in the form of outstanding service, extraordinary assistance or someone simply going beyond the call of duty, quality shines.
Quality can only occur when people strive to do their very best... and then do a little better. And there's no doubt that quality counts just as much today as it ever has, if not more so. In a world literally screaming out for someone who cares, far too few people seem to care enough nowadays to do their best and be their best. And its this glaring scarcity of quality in todays hustle and bustle, fast paced society that presents a world of opportunity for you to shine and better yet, carve yourself a lucrative niche.
The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.
If you truly want to stand out like the proverbial diamond in the rough, you simply need to STAND UP and then take a stand. Instead of just trying to get by or looking for ways to do the bare minimum as many do these days, why not choose a different path where outstanding quality is the name of the game?
Rather than just shooting for an average lifestyle, where you consistently put forth nothing more than an average effort and predictably achieve no better than average results, why not elect to be better than average? In fact, why not be way better?
The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Instead of just going through the motions like so many others, snoozing your way through life, why not begin stamping everything you do with an exclamation point showcasing the distinctive sign of QUALITY in everything you touch? By showing everyone what you can do and just how well you can do it, youre going to stand out and stand out in a big time hurry.
As a matter of fact, in a world running desperately short in the quality department, you can make your life stand for something truly special by making absolutely sure that quality counts and counts big time.
The Bottom Line The quality of your life depends entirely on the quality of your effort.
