On Giving 100%

Give me 100 percent,” said John Wooden, “You can’t make up for a poor effort today by giving 110 percent tomorrow. You don’t have 110 percent. You only have 100 percent, and that’s what I want from you right now.”

In his article, Give 100%, 100% of the Time, Ty Bennet writes: “Too many people coast through life, only doing what is required to get by. Giving 100%, 100% of the time is the effort required to stop getting by and start getting ahead. It is the difference between playing not to lose and playing to win. Living by design and not default. Giving 100% will separate you from the rest.”

Great leaders give 100% every day, in everything they do, in every thought that they have, in every feeling they experience. There is no wasting or short-cutting. It is their magnificent 100% investment in life and in who they are… for what they can and will be.

May you live passionately with design and purpose. May you have a ceaseless fervor for embracing every precious moment of your magnificent life’s journey giving 100% of you in everything that you are and do. As Wooden told us: “Make each day your masterpiece.” Life is so very, very good. Let’s just do it.

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
