A Vision for Quality
We see a world where our collective values have shifted worldwide so that we are now more concerned about the quality of the goods and services we produce and provide rather than the quantity that we produce and provide within a certain period of time. We see all of us taking more time to create and fine-tune our work, and we are focusing our attention on our work more carefully now instead of simply doing things quicker in order to meet a deadline or an artificial production schedule.
As a result of these changes in our work habits we are taking more pride in that which we create, produce and provide; there is less breakage, less replacements, less accidents, fewer recalls and fewer raw materials required in the long run because our products are built better than ever before. Indeed, they are built to last as long as possible.
Now, a caring for those who buy and use our products has returned to the workplace and, consequently, a true appreciation for the workers who make our products has returned, as well. Thus, instead of doing things at breakneck speed, we have now brought an age old spiritual perspective into the workplace. By producing higher-quality, well-made, long-lasting goods and services for our customers and clients, we are doing unto others as we would want done unto ourselves.
“Success is peace of mind in knowing you did your best.”

Your action for today is to reflect on your own definition of success and on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being right on) gauge where you are on your path to success.
