You have worked so very hard this year, and so I wish you a Happy Labor Day!
I hope you get to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor. You have earned it!
Here are 6 memorable quotes from famous people who know how to work hard, plus some thoughts from me in blue…
Thomas Edison – “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” (Therefore look for employees with Hustle, and make hustle a valued characteristic in your company.)
Maya Angelou – “Nothing will work unless you do.” (The leader is both a planner and a do’er. Show your team equal parts.)
Aristotle – “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” (So hire people with passion for their role in your company. Place people in the right role!)
Harvey Mackay – “Find something you love to do, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” (Amen, Brother!)
Ralph Waldo Emerson – “Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.” (Even poets and writers think about winning. Everyone loves to win. Show your team how to win.)
Oprah Winfrey – “The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work.” (If a billionaire believes this, so should we.)
Share inspiring quotes to your team every week, picking the themes you believe in (like my good friend and client Brian Resnick does.)
Keep them thinking and learning from the best and brightest. The higher their vision, the higher everyone will fly!
