- James McPartland
"The business we want, and the customers that we intend to keep, require a daily focus. In the event of an airplane crash, we would not recognize the air traffic controllers for yesterday's safe landings. We earn our results on a day by day basis."
Success is a results contest. And while we should celebrate our victories, every tomorrow is a new day. Championship teams find it enormously difficult to repeat last season's triumphs, and the hottest restaurant in town can go cold virtually overnight. History is littered with one hit wonders in technology, music, sports, and entertainment. We have all known those star employees who have felt that their past accomplishments entitled them to special treatment, despite their less than stellar current performance. Consider these questions in the daily meeting you have with yourself: * Am I exceeding my clients expectations? * Am I excelling as a leader? * Do I make my family proud? * Am I the type of friend that I would like to have? * Does my presence make an impact? * Would my absence make a difference? We have the chance to earn it every day. That is important for many reasons, one being that we will never know how many days we have left in this great game of life...
