In an article about Tiger Woods featured in The Wall Street Journal, the author of a new book about this great golfer wrote ”the constant need to improve and achieve is in his lifeblood.” That is Tiger Woods’ secret to excellence, the need to improve.
To prepare for a great game Mr. Woods is known to rehearse his swing for 4 1/2 hours in front of a mirror. This commitment to excellence by preparing for a great game is similar to myself preparing for a big speech or prepping a client for a major company change. It can be the same for you, as CEO, preparing and rehearsing how your business will improve and expand.
Every misstep or failure is an opportunity for Tiger Woods to learn and improve. Each swing that didn’t get the ball to where he wanted it is revised and new swing motions put into place.
In your business, every setback should have you heading to put new “swing” motions into place.
When excellence is concerned, the constant urge to improve is the key to success.
