Look for ways to increase the quality and quantity of your productivity every day. Successful, highly paid people are usually not more intelligent or skilled than unsuccessful, lowly paid people. The major difference between them is that successful people are always working to increase the quality and quantity of their services. They make increasing the level of their productivity a major business and professional goal. This should be one of your goals too.
Les Brown, the motivational speaker said, “To achieve something that you have never achieved before, you must become someone you’ve never been before.”
You begin your journey to excellent performance by asking the question, “What additional knowledge, skills, and information will I need to become the best in my industry in the months and years ahead?”
You could be only one skill away from doubling your productivity, performance and income. You may only need to bring up your skill level in one area for you to be able to use all of your other skills at a higher level.
Wolfgang von Goethe, the German philosopher said, “To have more, you must first be more.”
A wise man once said that the largest room is the room for improvement. Commit to improving your technical, professional and business skills.
“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” Proverbs 4:18
Knowledge is cumulative. The more you read, learn and practice the better you become at what you do. Invest an extra one or two hours per day in self-improvement, the cumulative effect of the investment on your ability to get results and add great value to your customers can be phenomenal
