Power Point: In some sports you can excel if you have natural talent. Not in swimming. You can have all the talent in the world, be built the right way, but you can’t be good or get good without hard work.
- Michael Phelps
Power Thought: As in sports, your natural abilities in the workplace will only carry you so far. Phelps has it right when he says the difference maker is hard work. Your commitment to the team and to its success is determined by how hard you work. There are no shortcuts.
Power Surge: The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, they won’t be worth a dime.
- Babe Ruth
