Remember when we were kids, and our parents, a relative, or perhaps a favorite elderly neighbor told us, "Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it?"
Well, it's taken me a long, long time to think of something substantial that is impossible: It's impossible to learn less about anything. No matter how hard we might try, we cannot learn less about how to raise our children; do our jobs, expand our vocabularies; or any other area of human endeavor. So why are most of us so unwilling to reach for an instruction manual, or a magazine that addresses a particular area, or to ask for help\advice from someone who is already better at it than we are? Let's be honest: Are all of us that happy with our performance levels? Vince Lombardi used to say,"The quality of our lives is in direct proportion to our commitment to excellence -- regardless of our field of endeavor."
Pat Riley is described as the "most winning coach in professional history." The Tao of Sweet Shortcuts focuses on those who demonstrate mastery again and again.
Coach Riley publicly made note of a tiny fact, that each player, improving even only 1% in each of the 5 main areas of basketball, would result in twelve men becoming 60% more effective as a team... and since one percent is such a tiny increase, you'd be correct in guessing that the actual improvement of each player was more than one pecent. Every man on that professional basketball team increased their performance from five to fifty percent in each area!!
Are you satisfied with your performance in all major areas of your life? Is your happiness, and that of your loved ones, worth 15 minutes out of a lifetime? Why not take a couple of blank sheets of paper, and creating columns on the paper, for these areas:
Under each of these headings, produce just 10 suggestions for improving your performance and satisfaction in each area. Along with your ideas, ask someone who IS doing better than you in that particular area. Obviously, they're doing something right, and in most cases, they will be pleased that you think enough of them to ask; and will be happy to help... BUT DO IT TODAY !!!!
An astonishing total of 84 banks turned down Walter's idea of creating an animated feature before the main feature in movie theaters across the country. How impressive that he didn't stop after 4 banks turned him down, or even 40 banks, or 70 banks... or 84. Bank #85 lent him $1500, he changed his puppet's name from Steamboat Willie to Mickey Mouse... and moved right into history. Walt Disney simply refused to quit.
There are tapes, books, movies, magazines, and more.... designed to help you to help yourself and those you care for. Friends, you can't possibly learn less about how to promote/increase your performance or your personal satisfaction in literally ANY area of your life. And since you and I will only have one go-round on the road of Life, aren't we... aren't YOU... worth at least a touch of excellence?
I assure you: excellence cannot occur accidentally;
that determines your Altitude.
