Back To Basics

WEEK 4 – JULY 2009

In this day and age when everyone is always looking for the extra edge, that extra 1% needed to win in whatever they are doing, it is always great to be reminded to do the basics, the cornerstones of success, personally and professionally. Are you making sure you do all the basics right?

We concern ourselves with finding some spell, potion, gadget or magic program to give us the 1% edge over competitors, when getting the basics right, the other 99% right is the actual problem.
Vern Gambetta

In times of life crisis, whether wild fires or smouldering stress, the first thing I do is go back to basics… am I eating right, am I getting enough sleep, am I getting some physical and mental exercise everyday?
Edward Albert

No one gets an iron-clad guarantee of success. Certainly, factors like opportunity, luck and timing are important. But the backbone of success is usually found in old-fashioned, basic concepts like hard work, determination, good planning and perseverance.
Mia Hamm

Become addicted to constant and never ending self-improvement.

Wishing you every success
