A little motivation-

While reviewing this year's fiscal operating budget, and getting myself mentally ready for the upcoming residential season I came across a few bits of wisdom shared with me by fellow businessman I network with. Hope it helps someone else get focused too!

1. SET A STANDARD, TRAIN FOR AND ACHIEVE THAT STANDARD, AND RAISE THAT STANDARD AGAIN. IT IS A NEVER-ENDING CYCLE, NEEDED TO PURSUE GREATER DEGREES OF SUCCESS.

2. ROLAND MARTIN (PRO BASS FISHERMAN) WAS ASKED, "WHY HAVE YOU BEEN SO SUCCESSFUL IN TOURNAMENT BASS FISHING?", ANSWER: "I TREAT EVERY CAST I MAKE LIKE THERE'S A 10LB. BASS ON THE OTHER END, ALWAYS. EVEN ON DAYS I DON'T GET A SINGLE BITE!"

3. DROP A PEBBLE IN A PUDDLE AND IT'S RIPPLES EFFECT EVERY PART OF THE PUDDLE. EVERYTHING WE DO OR DON'T DO IN OUR BUSINESS HAS THE SAME EFFECT.

4. BEST WAY NOT TO LOSE A FIGHT IS TO NOT GET IN ONE.

5. WHEN YOU FAIL TO CLIMB TO THE TOP, YOU FALL TO AND COMPETE WITH THE BOTTOM.

6. ORDINARY MEASURES RARELY ACHIEVE EXTRAORDINARY RESULTS.

7. NOTHING CHANGES UNLESS SOMETHING CHANGES.

8. SELLING BY PRICE LOSES TO SELLING BY PRICE, ALWAYS.

9. DIFFERENTIATE, OR BE THE SAME, AND THE CHEAPER GUY WINS.

10. HIGHER GROUND ALWAYS WINS IN A BATTLE.

11. DOWN-SELLING IS EASIER THAN UP-SELLING.

12. IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN, YOU PLAN TO FAIL.

Good luck to you all!
