If-we-did-all-the-thingsThomas Edison is credited with saying, “If we did all the things that we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”

What a great statement!

Just imagine for a moment a world in which you:

  • Perform at an elite level,
  • Maximise your contribution every day,
  • Use your skills for the benefit of others,
  • Never stop learning or growing,
  • Take risks and aren’t afraid to innovate,
  • Don’t give up at the first sign of difficulty or criticism,
  • Work where you can do what you are best at most of the time.

Are you astounded yet?

My suspicion is that the greatest leaders, the best athletes, the most proficient musicians and the most remarkable contributors to our society find a way to do these things more often than others.

The good news is that if you haven’t been doing all that you are capable of yet, it’s never too late.

You can start today.

You can set a new standard for your work.

You can astound yourself and everyone else around you!
