Do you want to know the absurd excuses why people (that is – me and you too) are settling for less than a great career? This is a chance to find out how a small difference actually makes a HUGE difference in our lives and in the lives of people who matter to us – it´s the difference between GOOD and GREAT, between INTEREST and PASSION.Larry Smith is a professor of economics at the University of Waterloo in Canada. He coaches his students to pursue great careers. He has mentored many of start up businesses, including Research in Motion (RIM) -the producer of BlackBerry.
Do not just watch the video below. Use it to make the difference! Or don´t. It´s up to you.
As for us – it made us to look more honestly at our own approach to work. Especially because we truly believe that being an example is the only way to teach our child.
Today we will do things differently because now we are smarter to catch ourselves when we try to hide behind our excuses. We will do our best that “today” is “every day”. We want to make sure we go for GREAT instead of GOOD. We owe it to ourselves, to each other, and certainly – to our child.
