Why Almost Is Never Good Enough

Why Almost Is Never Good Enough

Almost isn’t good enough.

If you almost got the job that really means you didn’t make the final cut.

If you almost won first place that really means you ended up losing.

If you almost finished the job that means you really left your mission incomplete.

If you almost care that really means you don’t care at all.

If you’ve almost did the right thing that really means you ended up doing the wrong thing.

If you have almost made it in time that really means you ended up being late.

If you almost figure it out that really means you still have questions and unsolved problems.

If you almost have enough to do what you want to do that really means you can’t be where you want to be right now.

If you almost are happy that really means you’re still dissatisfied.

If you almost always do something then that really means you might not be as disciplined as you should be.

If you almost have your mind made up that really means you’re not as confident yet as you want to be.

If you almost have the answer that really means you’re still looking for it.

If you almost are successful that really means you still have more work to do.

If you almost worked hard enough that really means you just didn’t put in enough effort.

If you’ve almost stopped a bad habit that really means you’re not as “in control” as you want to be

Almost isn’t what you want for you.

It is close. At times it looks like the real thing.

But it’s not good enough.

It’s almost the right thing.

And even though at times the difference is small, you can tell between being almost satisfied with your life and truly feeling a sense of accomplishment from what you’ve done.

From what you have achieved.

Don’t let almost be the enemy of awesome.

Achieve more.

Asif Premji

I believe in happy ever afters, whether they’re in books or life. I believe that the world is an occasional scary place, one where we need to carve out caves of safety. I believe in the power of the human spirit. I believe it’s a sin to be bored in a world filled with information, beauty, and fascinating things around us. I believe in making a positive difference – everyday – in the lives of everyone I meet. No judgements. No ego. No expectations. Making a difference in just ONE life means that ONE life made better. God Bless.

I first met Asif on Twitter. I had just walked away from one of the worst car shopping experiences I'd ever had (a Kia dealership) and *tweeted* it. Very soon after I received a tweet back from this "Asif Premji" guy. "Sorry to hear your car buying experience wasn't more positive - what are you looking for?" 

This was the first of many messages which has lead to not only the purchase (six months later) of a new Honda Civic Si for my wife but a professional and loyal relationship with Asif and his team. 

There is outstanding customer experience and then there is the unexpected and appreciated *Asif* level of customer experience. 

I would not hesitate to do or refer business with Asif and his team. By far one of the most enjoyable and confident car buying experiences in my lifetime. 

At Okotoks Honda I witnessed, "I actually give a $&@# about my customer", not just in words but in every day actions, long before I purchased a care and ever since. This is what I would call, Integrity in ACTION. It's not about the one off sale for them, Asif and his team truly understand the lifetime value of a single customer. 

If you're going to buy a Honda, it's well worth the trip to Okotoks and buy from anyone on Asif's team
