100% Matters

Education & Training with Keller Williams Realty

Consider what 99.9% effort and quality would mean in the following situations:

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·        <!--[endif]-->One hour of unsafe drinking water per month

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·        <!--[endif]-->Two unsafe landings at O’Hare International Airport each day

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·        <!--[endif]-->16,000 lost pieces of mail per hour

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·        <!--[endif]-->20,000 incorrectly filled drug prescriptions every year

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·        <!--[endif]-->500 incorrect surgical procedures performed each week

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·        <!--[endif]-->50 newborn babies dropped at birth by doctors every day

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·        <!--[endif]-->22,000 checks deducted from the wrong account each hour

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·        <!--[endif]-->Your heart failing to beat 32,000 times each year


Can you see why 100% is so important?  Just think about how much better your life would work if you (and everyone around you) were committed to excellence in everything you do.

Many times the missing link in giving 100% is execution or follow-through.  Once you make a commitment to something, it is a DONE DEAL.  Non-negotiable.  Case closed. 

It is very easy to commit to something, but challenging to deliver what you promise.  For instance, how many of us have said “I’m going to work out every day” – but we don’t.  We make excuses and justify in our minds why it is acceptable to lie to ourselves and breach the integrity of our words.

And when you break a commitment or create and exception “just this one time”, it is much easier to break it the second, third, fourth, fifth, and nine millionth times.  

What are you lying to yourself about?  What are justifying or making excuses about?  You MUST honor your commitments and your words.  After all, that is what separates the 100% people from the 99.9 per centers.

What an awesome way to quantify the dangers of not giving your all all of the time. It pays to be a person that gives 100% to everything he/she does because people notice and are attracted to this type of commitment.
