When being good is not enough…


“There’s loads of “good” around today but good is the new nice – it’s average” – Alan Austin  Smith

In his book Austin-Smith explains how we should all be fantastic in everything as being good is not enough.

There is a formula for developing as a fantastic person:-

  • Be passionate – really care about all that you do, understand the difference between what you do and why you do it?
  • Be creative – there was a time where the kettle in a hotel room was innovative now what is the next thing…
  • Delight people – don’t serve people – delight them – give them an experience
  • Performers – take action, don’t listen to the negative voices in your head – go for it
  • Alive inside – You are the Director of your life, don’t wait to be motivated
  • Always learning – take 15 minutes a day to learn something new
  • Having fun  – find a good balance, be able to hit the pause button and make constant changes so the big ones don’t hit you


In general use more adjectives in your life, be great/superb/splendid in what ever you do!!

Have a “fantastic” week!!
