The 1% Difference

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

I've often said that the difference between good and great is just 1%. The delta between someone in the top 5% of wage earners in this country and someone in the top 10% can be as little as 1%. It doesn't take a whole lot of effort to stand out and get ahead of the person next to you. Most times, all it takes is just an extra 1% of energy, effort, determination or the willingness to try something different. Work a little harder or work a little smarter. That's all it takes. Those who reap the greatest rewards in life...most often just put in a little more...that's the 1% I'm talking about.

As many of you know, I'm running the Chicago Marathon on October 9th. Just a short 26 mile jaunt - mild compared to the journey through the rest of life!

To donate go to:

I'm running the marathon under the charity of "Girls in the Game."

Back on Track! (???)

Let me start by saying, I know the marathon is meant to be a running sport; however, I'm coming to terms with the fact that I may have to walk it. It seems my groin drives a hard bargain.
