Go the Extra Mile

Simply put, going the extra mile is doing what others are not willing to do.

People that go the extra mile are the ones that that raise their hand when asked, “who wants to volunteer for this?” Going the extra mile is reviewing that contract, yet one more time when it’s past 7pm and you just want to get home.

Do you go the extra mile? What does going the extra mile mean to you?

Be authentic. Do it for you! As Mothers, Wives, Executives, Assistants, one thing is for sure, we are always going the extra mile for others. You will be surprised how amazing going the extra mile just once makes you feel. It’s contagious. It creates a sense of accomplishment that will encourage you to go the extra mile again and again and will start a force in motion.

Start small. Do the little things right to build confidence and start building on top of the small successes. Something as simple as cleaning off your desk every day can motivate and energize you to take bigger risks and set off a series of events leading to major accomplishments!

So what’s holding you back from going the extra mile?
