GIVING YOUR BEST TO LESS



Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

We always achieve more (versus do more) when we focus all our efforts on the important, so that really means our goal should be to give our best to less.

POWER OF BEING SPECIFIC

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

People who achieve success are far more specific in their goals than others, and they realise that their creativity kicks in much stronger when they have a specific target to focus on. Some think there is a danger in getting too specific, as they may miss opportunities…but that’s usually the opposite.

LIVING UP TO OUR WORDS

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

For leaders, and for all of us, our biggest problems come from when our actions don’t match our words. The people with great influence live up their words, and this brings power to whatever they say.
