Leadership Moment — 2 Jul 21

Champions show up to play every day.

You have an off day. Maybe you’re tired, maybe you’re in the doldrums. Maybe you’re sick. What do you do? Do you take a sick day? Of course, that’s appropriate if you think you’re infectious.

Greatness comes from grinding it out. Every day. Maybe you don’t always get your best work but you always give your best effort. That’s the best effort you can muster given your current circumstances.
