A few weeks ago, I directed you to the web site of “Simple Truths” to view the short, three-minute movie called “The Dash … Making a Difference With Your Life.” I hope it was as thought-provoking for you as it was for me. It certainly makes you re-evaluate your current priorities. More than 30 million people around the world have viewed it since its appearance on that site, and more than 20,000 a day continue to watch it as a result of folks passing it along as I did to you.
The following week I again directed you back to that same web site to view still another three-minute inspirational video called “The Nature of Success.” I found this one to be inspirational, energizing, and insightful as well.
Well, apparently good things come in threes as I just received another invitation to return to their web site to observe a third video. This one is titled “212 – The Extra Degree.” Again, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality, inspiration, and impact of what I witnessed. I found this one especially interesting as it reminded me a great deal of a familiar theme we share in many of our training seminars and keynote presentations … Sweat the Small Stuff. Little things do make a big difference, and we witness examples of this simple fact every day. It’s the “small stuff” that really makes an impression on us when it comes to making the decision to spend our hard-earned dollars on products and services of any kind. It’s also the “small stuff” that disturbs us to the point of deciding to take our business elsewhere on occasion.
This particular video is based on the fact that at 211 degrees water is hot; at 212 degrees it boils and turns to steam, and steam has enough energy to power a locomotive. It’s that one extra degree that makes all the difference. Some might consider one single degree as being “small stuff.” However, look at the impact it can have! If you enjoyed the first two videos, you’ll want to see this one as well. It’ll only take a few minutes, it’s absolutely free, and it’ll provide you with some serious content to ponder and share with others. Give it a look-see, you won’t regret it!
