Being The Best You Can Be

KONGFUSCIOUS® say, "If you are not passionate about your work, you have a choice to become passionate or find new work."

— Be Passionate —

All successful people have a passion for performance and the direct affect/effect it has on the outcome. Passion is the fuel that drives people to tirelessly dedicate themselves to education, improvements, mediation, progress, tasks, etc.

Ultimately, passion is the key to success — it fuels the fire and keeps one from giving up. Passion builds tenacity and keeps the fire burning until underlying goals are achieved.

— Love Your Path —

Although there will be many of times when you may not appreciate or love what you're doing, but if you love the path that you're on — your bridge will not wane over troubled waters. It may take time and perhaps even years of effort before an individual can start to fall in love with their work — the time and commitment is essential to one's performance.

— Have Best Partners — 

Generally speaking from employees-to-suppliers, designers-to-manufactures — having the best partners is essential. It is vital that all his partners play an important role in delivering the best product or service in the world.

A great leader always have the best employees or rather, he/she gets the best performance out of him/her. Training the right way and leading tirelessly helps motivate others to always push to be better. More importantly, it teaches them how to always seek to innovate and improve on their own.

Sukiyabashi Jiro is a 3-star Michelin restaurant in Tokyo that many say
serves the Best Sushi in the World. The chef/owner, 86-year-old Jiro Ono,
was the subject of last year's "critically-acclaimed" Jiro Dreams of Sushi documentary film.

A meal by a food critic was 21 courses for approx. $380USD per person (excluding drinks),
and lasted only 19 minutes, more than a course a minute — approx. $20 per person per minute.

— Never Stop Improving —

Jiro, at 86-years-old, is "widely-considered" the Best Sushi Chef in the Whole Wide World. And yet, he proudly states that he is not perfect and there is always room for improvement. After receiving numerous Lifetime Achievement Awards from Japan declaring him as a National Treasure, he actually returned to work the same day whilst most workers would have taken the rest of the day-off.

It should not be surprising to find the most successful of businesses with bosses or owners working harder and longer than the company's top performers!
