16Who do you think about more in a given day… yourself or OTHERS ???
17How can passion in your work and life turn the ordinary intothe extraordinary?
18Martin Luther King said, "If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause and to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.'"
19The FOUR “Fred Factor” principles: Everyone makes a difference. The only question at the end of the day is “What kind of difference did you make?”Everything is built on relationships. Go beyond simply interacting with customers and colleagues to build relationships.You must continually create value for others, and it doesn’t have to cost a penny. You can replace money with imagination. The objective is to outthink your competition rather than outspend them.You can reinvent yourself regularly. No matter what job you hold, what industry you work in or where you live in the world, you wake up every morning “tabala rasa,” with a blank slate, and you can make your business and your life anything you choose.You Chose!!!

21The Dread Factor Do you look forward to coming into work? Does work seem too much like work?Do you lift up those around you or bring them down?Are others constantly trying to cheer you up or asking you “What’s wrong?”Does it feel like you can never get away from work?Are you thinking about having to come back to work before you ever get home from work?
23“When your life is at low tide, when your professional commitment is wavering and you just want to get the job done and go home at the end of the day, what can you do?“Here’s what I do: I think about the guy who used to deliver my mail. Because if Fred the Postman could bring extraordinary creativity and commitment to putting mail in a box, I can do as much or more to reinvent my work and rejuvenate my efforts. He is proof that there are no insignificant or ordinary jobs when they’re performed by significant or extraordinary people.That’s what I call the Fred Factor.”
