“the best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today.” ~ Elbert Hubbard
What does this mean to you? I think it means something like the “Slight Edge” theory, where you begin making those changes one day at a time and each day that you accomplish good work it is a step to move forward in the direction you desire. You are picking up momentum each day.
If you do good work today for tomorrow and do the same tomorrow you will begin to create the habits and change you want to see in your work and home life.
How can we make sure we do a job well? One way is to ask your superior and another proof you are doing the right thing will be evident by the result of your efforts.
By building on your effort to do good work each day, not only will those around you see the difference you are making in your job, but you will be flying high with the realization that you are contributing to the success of the business as a whole.
We all have seen those employees who are at work each day to do as little as they can to make it through the day and collect their paycheck. When you talk to them they are pretty empty and there is no real connection to the business or what they contribute. They check in and then wait their 8, hours putting in as little effort as possible, and check out.
How we work is a choice. What choice are you making today? Are you just checking in or are you making a difference?
