Joe Montana, quarterback for the 49ers, once said, “If winning wasn’t important, people wouldn’t keep score. Like it or not, we live in a world that keeps score.”
Whether it’s in business or relationships, results are the measure of our success.
How many times have we said we’ll get something done only to let it slip from our mind minutes later.
It means nothing to say we will do something, in the end what matters is whether you get the job done or not. But is that really true?
For any task there are actually three possible outcomes
- Success done wrong
- Success done right
Some of you might be asking yourself – what’s the difference between 2 & 3?
In both cases the job got done, isn’t that all that matters? And the answer is – no.
You can still fail even when getting the results. The key is the process.
Below are just a few of the things that can make even the best results seem worthless:
- lack of updates
- complain constantly
- ignore guidelines
While I wholeheartedly believe that results are everything, what separates people are the little things.
In today’s world we not only want results, but results done right.
