“How you do anything is how you do everything” – The internet is full of nuggets of wisdom just like this one. So what? There’s nothing useful in that statement that can help us get to WOW, every day.
Think about when you were positively overwhelmed with a good experience. Remember how you felt a sense of awe that lifted up the whole rest of the day.
The alternative is being “good enough” at what we do. Getting the job done, saying hello and goodbye to our coworkers, going home, and doing it all again the next day. And week. And month. And decade. And then, that’s our career, and we’ve missed the chance to create something extraordinary. Boring! It doesn’t have to be that way.
Now think about designing your habits to create WOW moments just like that. Moments that give you pause and raise the volume of “awe” to 11 in yourself as well as those you work with.
Creating “WOW” by being extraordinary is a choice. Choose to be remarkable. Choose to delight a customer, internal or external.
It’s not enough to be good. It’s not enough to be great. Choose to create WOW and the awe will follow. Do that every day and see what it does for your relationships, your career, and your business. Then report back . . .
