Never pass up an opportunity to DO THINGS that blow people away in their scope and uniqueness.
Doing things just like everyone else does them might be enough to get the job done but will it make others take notice or lead to more opportunities? If Elvis had just stood and sang like the other singers of his day he would not have been the huge celebrity that he was. Yes, he had a great voice but it was the little extra twist that made him unique and got him noticed.
Anything worth doing is worth doing with a little extra so people pay more attention. Doing just a little extra in a unique way will set you apart from everyone else and lead to even more opportunities in your life. Why be the crossing guard when you can be the crossing guard that waves at all the cars and runs off the street after the last child has left the roadway.
Start adding just a little extra to the things that you do.
