Chapter Ten

Discover business coaching mentoring advice that can be applied immediately to achieve better results in your business, as well as in your personal life.

"If you design a better product and deliver better service than your competitor, even despite a poor location, the world will beat a path to your door.”

When a person once asked him to repair a watch upon which his name was fraudulently engraved, Tampion smashed it with a hammer, and handed the astonished customer one of his own master-pieces, saying, “Sir, here is a watch of my making.”

Tampion now rests in Westminster Abbey, because of the accuracy of his work.

"Character is power, and is the best advertisement in the entire world."

“Make me as good a hammer as you know how,” said a carpenter to the New York blacksmith. “As good as I know how?” asked David Maydole doubtfully, “you may not wish to pay for one made a good as I know how to make.”

“Yes, I do,” Exclaimed the carpenter, “ I want a good solid hammer that I can count on.”

Maydole, not in need of any business coaching mentoring, presented the man with probably the best hammer ever made, complete with vast improvement in the eyes of the carpenter. The carpenter gladly paid his price and boasted to his companions of his great prize.

They all came to the shop the very next day to order their own quality hammer. The contractor even came by and requested a hammer that possessed even greater qualities as the one ordered by his men, which sparked the reply, “Sir, I can’t make any better hammer. When I make a thing, I make it as well as I can, no matter whom it is for.”

"I hate a thing done by halves. If it be right, do it boldly;
if it be wrong, leave it undone."

- Gilpin

“I don’t try to see how cheap a machine I can produce, but how good a machine,” said the late John C. Whitin, a famous manufacturer and businesss management coaching expert.

“Whatever is right to do,” said an eminent writer, “should be done with our best care, strength, and faithful purpose. That which seems trivial to many may hold the secrets of life and death in critical moments.”

There is really only one true failure in life that is possible for any man or woman, and that is to not be true to the best effort one knows how to exert. Business coaching development is one way to ensure this never happens to you.

“If you make a good hairpin,” said a successful manufacturer, “you will earn more than if you make a bad steam-engine.”

Small business coaching experts state that carelessness, indifference and laziness are all words that could easily be written on the tombstones of thousands who have failed in life. Business coaching mentoring activities remind us of how may clerks, cashiers, scholars, or clergymen have lost their position and prestige by carelessness and inaccuracy!

"The accurate employee is always the favored one. Those who employ people do not wish to be on the constant lookout for rogues or fools. Employers value competency."
- Tuttle

The true demand for perfection is overwhelming. To be considered great by the masses, simply do one thing better than anyone else on the planet.

"Accuracy means character and character is power."

Your attention to detail is the same as writing your signature on a legal document. Your work is your promise for what people can expect from you as a rule. Above all else, pay attention to this critical business coaching mentoring advice.

We must all strive for accuracy as we would do for wisdom. We must promise through our daily deeds the quality that all shall come to expect.

Careless and indifferent habits will soon ruin any man or woman seeking employment, say business coaching mentoring advisors. Nearly every successful person is accurate and will not compromise for any sum of money.

Business Coaching Mentoring Activities

  1. Describe an instance in your life where more resolute accuracy would have made a difference in your decision-making. Explain how well you have typically researched the material you base your decisions on. Are you genuinely pleased with the typical outcome of your decisions?

  2. Explain what pains you take to ensure accuracy in the information you process or pass along to others. Are you satisfied with the results you receive and/or provide?

  3. Given what you know now from the above business coaching mentoring, do you wish to improve the level of accuracy in your life? If yes, write down what you'll do differently to gain better results.
