To lower expectations or not?

We often compare today’s performance relative to yesterdays.

It’s a bit better, or a bit worse… and that’s OK.

But the problem, the huge problem, with this is that when we tolerate slightly worse on a daily basis, we ultimately lower our expectations and slide into mediocrity.

The alternative is to get crystal clear on the standard that is required and to hold ourselves, and our colleagues, to this.


Performance increases with higher expectations.
