The 212°: The Extra Degree concept is one definately that is very powerful when you stop and think about it.
If you're not familiar, here's the idea:
At 211 degrees...water is hot.
At 212 degrees...it boils.
And with boiling water, comes steam.
And steam can power a locomotive.
And, it's that one extra degree that...Makes all the difference.
So many times, in business, friendships, family, basicly all areas in life, it's that one extra degree of effort that separates the good from the great. The 212° idea is one that you can use it to fit your own life, in so many ways. It may be 212° service that you'd like to reinforce, or 212° attitude, leadership, or quality you would like to expound on. Or maybe, you'll choose to build your entire culture around the 212° concept...to differentiate you from your competition, your neighbor, your coworker. Maybe its just a reminder of that little bit of extra effort will be just the motivation you need to do more to serve your Savior who gave more than 212° for you. To reach out and encourage someone to have faith and believe, disregard the mediocre and replace it with excellence.
The real beauty of 212° is the simplicity of the idea. It reminds us that seemingly small things can make tremendous differences. Once explained...everybody gets it. And once you get it...it's hard to forget. The only aspect of forgetting would be to not implement it.
