211 vs. 212

May 7, 2007 § Leave a comment

I recently read a wonderful and inspiring little book called, “212 The Extra Degree“, by S. L. Parker.  The basic premise stems from a scientific observation: At 211 degrees Fahrenheit you have very hot water, but add just one degree of temperature to reach 212 and you now have boiling water, which produces steam, which in turn can be harnessed to provide enormous power.   I think it is a great metaphor. Too often we fall short of giving that extra 1 degree of effort that could be making all the difference in our lives and in our businesses.   If you have ever felt unsure about whether it is worthwhile to go the extra mile, or if you are looking for inspiration to take your success and satisfaction to a new level this may be a great book for you
