At 211?? water is hot. At 212??, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive. The one extra degree makes the difference. This simple analogy reflects the ultimate definition of excellence. Because it’s the one extra degree of effort, in business and life, that can separate the good from the great. This powerful book by Sam Parker and Mac Anderson gives solid examples of how to incorporate the 212?? philosophy into all aspects of your life – at work, with friends and as a parent. Great quotes and great stories illustrate the 212?? concept in a memorable format. A warning…once you read it, it will be hard to forget.
