Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 13SEP10

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: business execution

Imagine waiting a lifetime for the opportunity to play professional football and having that opportunity end just days before the regular season begins.

22 players were recently cut from the San Francisco 49er’s pre-season roster.  Those who weren’t cut had to breathe a huge sigh of relief: they had made it to the regular season.

In a surprise move a couple of days later, the 49er’s cut their third-string quarterback. Coach Singletary said:

“I really like the kid.  There’s a lot to like about him, but there’s a work ethic that you have in terms of being a quarterback in the NFL.”

Having talent but merely showing up doesn’t cut it in the NFL or in any organization for that matter.

Companies that thrive know it’s not enough to merely show up.

Thought for the week:

“Either you run the day or the day runs you.” -Jim Rohn
