Top achievers are not content with mediocrity. They don’t settle for second best. They are not satisfied to simply do things just like others have done them. Winners always want to raise the standards. They want to excel and want everything they do to be of first class quality. They go the extra mile. They put uncommon effort into common tasks. Focus on doing everything with excellence, and you will build a reputation that will take you to the top.
“The kind of people I look for to fill top management spots are the eager beavers, the mavericks. The guys who try to do more than they’re expected to do. They always reach.”
