As Tina Turner once said….”Better than all the rest”


Did you know that most of us are average. Really it’s absolutely true. Think about the people who you work with and the people who serve you or supply to you and this conclusion is unavoidable. It’s just the way of things: there are very few people who are exceptional at what they do in the same way as there are very people who are utterly rubbish (the former group is smaller than the latter I fear).

I am not saying that people don’t care or that they should work harder or even that they are not skilled enough – although any of those things can be true. No, what I am saying is that most people just go through life doing their jobs and getting things done paying scant regard to “being better” – too many deadlines, tight budgets and grouchy clients for that I am afraid.

So what do this mean? Well the good news is that you don’t have to be that much better to stand out. In fact if you make a number of small improvements to what you do and the way that you do it that should be enough.  I would advise you look at your attitude and how you actually communicate with other people for a start. You have pretty much total control over these aspects of your life and they also have a great influence on the people you connect with.

Easy innit?
