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

fantastic

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

Have a “fantastic” week!!
