Lean Quote: Inspiration

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"The one extra degree of effort in business and in life. Separates the good from the great." — Unknown

At 211 degrees, water is hot.
At 212 degrees, it boils.
And with boiling water comes steam.
And steam can power a locomotive.
So many times it is that one extra degree of effort in business and in life that separates the good from the great.
The beauty of 212° is not only the simplicity but also the many applications. You can apply the concept to 212° service, 212° attitude, 212° leadership, 212° kindness, 212° commitment, 212° focus, 212° perseverance and the list goes on. Whatever your passion or profession, how true it is!

The next time you or your team needs inspiration refer back to this video's message:

It's your life.  You are responsible for the results. To get what we have never had we must do what we have never done.
