Being Curiously Great.

Obsess over the details. Don’t be afraid to look like a fool while you get down on your hands and knees and dig through the mud for the solution to your problem.

The truth about greatness is that it requires an unusual focus on steadfast improvement.

You have to care about the things that other people don’t care about.

The details. The edge cases. The problems that others just excuse away as it being “good enough”.

Those tiny changes end up yielding the greatest results.

Often it is the seemingly insignificant upgrade that delivers the highest return on investment.

It could be as simple as another smile in your retail establishment. Maybe it’s just an  hour earlier out of bed each day working on your craft when you used to be sleeping.

Mentors, coaches, mastermind groups, books, seminars, online training — everything you could ever need to improve is closer than ever.

Access to answers isn’t your problem.

Your problem is that you’re satisfied with what you’ve already done.

You’ve been lulled to sleep with mediocre success. You’ve forgotten that somebody who wants it more than you is working harder at mastering the details right now than you are.

Be consumed with curiosity.

Let that drive you and lead you and will you towards audacious results.
