Sometimes we think that we need to push ourselves to do that one extraordinary thing to really stand out as a high performer or a star. This isn’t the case at all. Those that do have a singular flash of success are often the ones who struggle to perform in all other times.
The highest performers that sustain over a period of time are consistently solid with the basics. They invest themselves and the focus of their work in their craft. They continually learning to do the little things exceptionally well. They are adaptive to change and observe the outcomes of their contribution in relation with others. They make others better through their work on the basics.
“If you want to win, do the ordinary things better than anyone else does them day in and day out.” — Chuck Knoll —
