Rising Above the Crowd

“Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful individuals above the crowd: a little bit more. They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more.” 
A. Lou Vickery, Writer

I like that advice. When you think you’ve finished your work for today, or your training or learning or whatever… what is that little bit more that you can do to help you to rise above the crowd?

Here’s to your success in business…




  1. George Gregan (international rugby player) demonstrates that little bit more attitude. See my post at if you’re interested. 🙂

  2. I agree, “A little bit more!” You may also want to try, “A Little Bit Better” We can alwayes take the extra step to make something a bit better and do more.

  3. I agree that doing a little bit more for clients is a great business practice.

    But I have learnt that I cna’t ask myself to do a little but more at the end of each work day/session – I need to know when to stop and take a break!
