I'm sure by now that if you're following the Olympics, you know that Michael Phelps tied Mark Spitz' historic performance and won his 7th gold medal in a single Olympic games. What is amazing is that he won by just 0.01 seconds. That's 1/100th of a second!
Think about that - with the slimmest of margins, there is no room for error. Yet his training prepared him to accomplish this.
In the interview after the race, Spitz was extremely eloquent, and I was impressed with what he had to say.
So. the next time we think that one sheet of paper, or a fraction or an inch, a few minutes here-or-there may not matter - it may make the difference between making a sale and having the buyer go someplace else.
