I sat quietly as I listened to my 26-year-old Daughter lecture me on the perils of working “too much”.
“You miss out on so much Dad , You just need to slow down.”
I didn’t argue, and I certainly didn’t mention that I was about to extend my work day by an additional hour for Daylight savings time… I just smiled .
Finally I put my hand on her shoulder and said ” Sweetie, I have seen the damage of working too little.”
I just don’t know how to achieve great success without hard work !!
And I have found that the absence of hard work always equals an absence of success.
I have compiled a small list of things I don’t think you can ever have “too much” of
- Effort - Every time I apply more effort I reap more reward. NEVER FAILS !!
- Passion – When you love what you do it is infectious , You feel it, Your Customer feels it, And Your Family benefits from it
- Integrity – There simply is no such thing as being too honest
-Loyalty – A forgotten principle in todays Market place . Loyalty to the customer, and to the Company are high on my list of personal priorities .
- Drive – My cell phone is set to send me a message every Morning at 5 am it simply says “Get it All”
What would you add to the list?
Sell like your living depends on it
