    The Importance of High Standards in Your Life and Career: What High Standards Mean

    By Sep 20,2017

    It is important to have high standards. For the most part, life will pay any price you ask of it. The people who achieve the most in the world have incredibly high standards. It is like this with businesses as well. A great piece of machinery, or a great service, is like this because of the standards that are followed. For example, the best law firms generally have the best standards. When a document leaves their office, it is generally exceptional and very well done. There are no typos and the logic is clear and compelling. The people working...

    Concentrate on the Process, Not the Results

    By Sep 19,2017

    Some time ago, I was listening to a seminar about a company that was in the furniture business. This company decided that because it was doing so well, it should expand into the piano business, and also sell pianos. They went out and purchased a Steinway and took the piano apart to study all of the pieces. Then they made the same pieces themselves and built a piano.
