Question any advice that suggests you can produce excellent results without having to work on the outer limits of your comfort zone. Bad advice sounds nice.

When what your client needs changes, your value proposition needs to change. Ask yourself this, “What value can we deliver that makes us worth paying for?”

If you are driving, please don’t send text messages. There is no message so important that you can’t wait until you stop to send it.

Same thing happened to me about 4 years ago. Woman driving a SUV hit  me while I was stopped at a traffic light.

We get so caught up in our instant communication that it is difficult to ignore the pings and bells. Better to put the phone in the back seat while you drive.

I like the way you have laid it out Anthony, but I also think that the client and the circumstance should dictate how to follow through. I'd like to think of it as old school meets new school for a winning strategy.

Clients aren’t an abstraction. If you want to improve your performance, go feel what it is like to deal with the concrete reality of serving your clients.

Sometimes isn’t a good model. If an outcome is important, consistency is what will generate that result.
