On Commitment

leave a comment »

There is a difference between interest and commitment. 
When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. 
When you’re committed to something,
you accept no excuses, only results.
– Ken Blanchard

If people’s commitment was to 99.9% quality instead of 100% it would mean:

  1. Two unsafe landings at O’Hare International Airport each month
  2. 20,000 incorrectly filled drug prescriptions every year
  3. 500 incorrect surgical operations performed each week
  4. 50 newborn babies dropped at birth by doctors each day
  5. Your heart failing to beat 32,000 times each year.
