Be in the moment....


Most everyone agrees it’s necessary to focus on the present when in the pursuit of excellence. Worrying about what happened yesterday or wondering what might happen tomorrow takes away from the energy you need to witness what’s happening today. We’ve all experienced inattentive employees while waiting for service; waited in long drive-thru lines and wondered why they couldn’t all be as efficient and fast as the ones at Chick fil A; or suffered poorly trained retail employees when we know that if those stores tried a little harder they could be as good as Apple: how hard is it for people to look for people who are looking for service. It’s not that difficult to do great work if you stay focused, try new strategies when old ones stop working, or equip employees to know how to do unto others what they wish would happen to them under the same circumstances. Great results can be achieved if you stay focused on today.
