More than enough

If you do just enough to get by, that’s all that will ever happen -- you’ll just get by. Doing just enough to get by, means stopping a little bit short of what’s necessary for extraordinary success. Because there is very little difference in effort between doing just enough and doing a little more than enough.

Even the smallest amount of extra effort will set you apart. Even the smallest added value can make the difference between being number one and just being the same as all the rest.

Enough to get by, is not enough. It would be a waste to do just enough, when a little extra could bring you so much more.

Doing just enough to get by will imprison you in a life where you never can seem to get ahead. Doing just a little extra will make you soar.

— Ralph Marston
