Who’s Looking At You?

 
flagThe Olympics are over. All the buzz and excitement of international competition is gone. Compelling stories of athletes overcoming adversity, failures and triumphs are already fading.
Feels kinda sorta like a downer, right?                                   
Merry Ole England did a bang up job of hosting the 2012 games. The royals were out and about, security was a success, traffic was smooth, athletes commented on how very polite the Brits were (natch Daaahling!) and they even built a special ‘Olympic Park’ at the airport terminal for departing visitors. By Joves, I say that’s a jolly nice touch, eh what?

Closing ceremonies were quite spectacular, did you think? That is, after the opening vocalist, (whoever she was) singing a bunch of flat notes. You’d have thought it was me – and that’s not a good thing.
 
My favorite part was how singers performed while being chauffered around the stadium in a parade of Rolls Royces (my future car).

So what now?
 
Motivation to be great comes easy when you know the world is watching.   
 
Motivation to be great at work? Not so much.
 
As a motivational speaker at conferences I talk about how top performers give it their best shot all the time because excellence has become a habit.
 
Who’s looking?
 
 
Your customers/boss/team/colleagues/vendors/family/friends.
 
Go the extra mile. Bring home the gold.
