My dad taught me this as a child. He told me that doing the bare minimum is being lazy. Instead, I learned that when I do something to look at what else I could do to add value. A childhood example was, I was told to mow the lawn. However, to go above and beyond I know the lawn would look better if I picked up all the trash and sticks first. Every time I see mowed over trash in a yard, I think back to my dad’s advice. This carries over to all areas of our lives and to be successful, don’t just do the minimum when you know you can do more.
