I know I’m sometimes guilty of seeing the PROBLEM and not past it to see the SOLUTION!
There’s always a solution behind every PROBLEM! You just have to look through it!
It is better to laugh about your problems than to cry about them. It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?
Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities – always see them for they’re always there.
Norman Vincent Peale
There is always something you can do about any problem; even it if is just changing your perspective on how you feel about the problem.
Believe it is possible to solve your problem. Tremendous things happen to the believer. So believe the answer will come. It will.
Norman Vincent Peale
Today we have a look at the subject of
‘Continuous Improvement’. I personally liked this
quote from Kim Collins….Strive for continuous
improvement, instead of perfection.
And another one from Steve Ballmer..As a global
company, our future growth and success requires that
we constantly look at ways to improve our ability to
serve customers worldwide.
And the same goes for me!
‘Til next time!
While on the subject of COMFORT ZONES – here’s a poem that
inspired this cartoon…
My Comfort Zone – A Poem
I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn’t fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I’d never done before,
But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.
I said it didn’t matter that I wasn’t doing much.
I said I didn’t care for things like commission checks and such.
I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.
I couldn’t let my life go by just watching others win.
I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.
If you’re in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!
"One today is worth two tomorrows; never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today." Benjamin Franklin 1706-1790, US Statesman, Diplomat and Inventor
There are no traffic jams in the extra mile. Unknown
No one ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him; it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.
Charles Francis Adams
Give the world the best that you have, and the best will come back to you.
One of the most important principles of success is developing the habit of going the extra mile.
Always render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be. Og Mandino
And here are some great ‘customer service’ quotes that you should
REALLY take note on…
"There is only one boss. The customer.
And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down,
simply by spending his money somewhere else."
"One customer, well taken care of, could be more valuable than $10,000
worth of advertising."
"Being on par in terms of price and quality only gets you into the game.
Service wins the game."
"Here is a simple but powerful rule –
always give people more than what they expect to get."
