Sam Parker is the author of 212° the Extra Degree. The first two pages of the book set its intention: “At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam . . . and with steam, you can power a train.”
I discovered this powerful book several years ago, and Mr. Parker’s words frequently come to mind when I feel stuck in the moment, or feel as though a project isn’t progressing as well as I want. Often times with one more degree of effort, I can move forward, get unstuck, and make progress.
What could you accomplish with one more degree?
- Would you sort through the resumes sitting on your desk and discover that right person for the new seat in your company?
- Perhaps the sales team would be able to celebrate their progress toward achieving their sales goal with just two more sales calls this week.
Consider having two or three staff members get together as a 212° team, offering each other support and mentorship to move a project forward. Maybe extra effort will prepare a colleague for the additional responsibility they seek.
I’m not suggesting one more degree of effort guarantees getting the exact results you want. However, the extra degree creates momentum . . . and with momentum we move forward.
