I see it everyday, people not working up to their potential. People only doing what is asked of them, not going the extra mile to become remarkable. I can’t remember the last time I saw someone think outside the box instead of just following the rules.
We live in a society where people are doing “Just Enough” to get by. They do Just Enough at work to make sure they don’t get fired. We are lazy but at the same time feel that we’re entitled to keep being promoted and getting raises when we perform at sub par levels.
Do you think these people only did Just Enough in their lives:
….. And it’s not just billionaires. It’s a teacher pushing your child to do better, it’s the fireman who goes the extra mile to make sure everyone is safe, it’s your co-worker and most importantly….. it’s you.
Make it a habit to do more than Just Enough. It’s a habit and a mindset that will pay off in the end.
