When I worked as the ecommerce manager for Blue Haven Pools and Spas Supplies Direct, our customer service manager turned our leadership team on to a book called “212°” (that’s 212 degrees).
Here’s the basic concept of the book:
“At 211°, water is hot. At 212°, water boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive. The one extra degree makes the difference.”
We often think that transformational change (or success) is a matter of making a major overhaul. Could it be that the difference between where you are now and where you want to be is simply a matter of one degree?
