Everything Counts

The Importance of Sweating The Small Stuff

Its meaning is simple, yet powerful…

everything you think…

everything you say…

and, everything you do…

has a direction…

which takes you…

towards or away…

from your goals.

You see, you can only move…

forward or backward…

you can only move…

north or south…

there is no standing still…

there is no staying the same…

there is no coasting, as…

everything you think, say and do…

compliments or comprises…

impresses or disappoints…

builds up or tears down…

turns on or turns off…

adds or subtracts…

nothing is neutral.

Excellence is all about sweating the small stuff

Everything — regardless of size or intent — has bottom-line consequences; therefore, everything counts.

This is the golden rule of excellence!

By adopting the golden rule of excellence, you’ll begin to examine even the smallest details; those which in the past may have compromised performance and even contaminated your character and reputation.

No matter how you define performance excellence, it will always include exceptional quality, meticulous attention to details, uncompromising standards, and superior craftsmanship fueled by love and passion.

Excellence is respected and admired, and serves as the triumphant accomplishment of those unwilling to accept anything less than their absolute best.

World-class results are the product of world-class habits and activities. From start to finish, the distinguishing characteristics of success are found in the details.

Make no mistake, the adoption of an Everything Counts! philosophy takes conscious effort, immense discipline, and a deep reservoir of commitment.

If it were easy, you wouldn’t need those attributes to be successful!
