212 degrees... Just One Extra Degree
It wasn't so long ago that I heard about One Extra Degree and was intrigued by it. My husband actually used the concept with his basketball team this year, having 212 degrees put on the back of their shooting jerseys. Then, as I returned to work today, we were presented with the concept at our faculty meeting. The comparison between the boiling point of water and striving to be someone that stands above the rest is an analogy that can really make you think. It can help you to take a step back and look at yourself and ask, "What can I do to create that steam?" If you don't know what I'm talking about, then watch this video.
