Disconnect From Hope and Enthusiasm

Connect to hard work.

The only way to excel at business excellence – and maintain it – is to outwork your previous self.

The others around you aren’t your competition, although we are tempted to live in that paradigm.

Our old habits of banking on hope and enthusiasm, yet not being willing to .think .differently will fail us.

We must become an insatiable student and a remarkable teacher of business excellence.

Then we’ll come full circle and we can again embrace hope and enthusiasm.
