No Regrets, a Do-Over Recipe for Success

This weekend I was working on my next book and the ending of my chapter described my keynote program: "No Regrets, a Do-over Recipe for Success." I thought I would share some ideas from the book with you as we move into the dog days of Summer.

This is what a No Regrets, Do-over Recipe and Building a Personal recipe for success is all about: Abraham Lincoln made the comment, "It's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years." It's important to be able to bring balance together, learn to use the ingredients you have and know what you want from life. Start with being a better person and try to make the world a better place.

I like to suggest that it's all about three little words: and then some. These three little words are the secret to success. They're the difference between average people and extraordinary people in most organizations. Extraordinary people always do what is expected, and then some. They're thoughtful of others, they are considerate and kind and then some. They meet their obligations and responsibilities fairly and squarely and then some. They are good friends, helpful neighbors and then some. They can be counted on in an emergency, and then some. I'm thankful for people like this; they make the world more livable. Their spirit of service is summed up in these three words: and then some.
