I had the privilege of speaking with an amazing individual this morning. Our main point of discussion was on the act of creating value propositions that you can leverage into a full-time job at a company. I was speaking with Nick Rundlett, who is a master at this practice.
One key factor we discussed was his work ethic. Nick outperformed his entire sales team (combined) for 6 months in a row at Reliant Technologies. How did he do it?
He gave 110% every single day.
It’s simple. It’s just about holding yourself accountable to a standard that everyone else is scared to do.
But what does 110% look like in reality?
110% means doing all that is expected of you and more.
110% means striving for excellence consistently.
110% means creating more value than anyone knows what to do with.
110% means moving with intention.
110% means never settling.
Most people can’t do this, but when you put in the effort, success will follow. Just ask Nick.
Now I implore you to ask these questions so you know if you are holding yourself accountable to 110% :
What is required of me today?
The answer to that shows you what you have to do. The follow-up question should be:
What am I doing beyond that?
Now you know, and if you aren’t at 110%, find the answer to this question:
How can I go beyond what is asked of me, and create extra value in the world today?
Once you have it, the rest is simple. Just take action and give 110%.
