Have you ever felt like slack­ing off your work a bit? Doing just a “good enough” job? Maybe you didn’t feel well that day, maybe you didn’t have a good day or maybe you felt just a bit lazy. Or you may have thought:  “the boss is not look­ing, he will never know; the client will never notice, so why bother?” You were prob­a­bly right. Their eyes were not on you at that moment.

Here is a question…what is the dif­fer­ence between a qual­ity and non-quality delivery?

imagesThe dif­fer­ence is in what you do when no one is look­ing. It is more vis­i­ble when peo­ple are watch­ing of course, but that is not the point. It is too late then.

I am sure you have been in a restau­rant or a shop where the staff was just awful. No ser­vice, no care. Think about it, that was actu­ally the time when you were watch­ing. Can you imag­ine what they do when they are sure no one is looking???

My point is this: you can­not deliver qual­ity only from time to time. There is no such thing. You either give every­thing you’ve got and deliver top nudge qual­ity or you don’t. One way or the other your clients, col­leagues, team mem­bers or bosses will feel you are not doing your best.

If you want to suc­ceed in what­ever field of your life or busi­ness, you always have to aim high, do your best and deliver the high­est qual­ity you are capa­ble of. That is the only way to a long term suc­cess. There are no shortcuts.

It is this sim­ple, although it is not easy. Not easy at all. That’s why only the best ones succeed.
