“The minute you get away from fundamentals – whether it’s proper technique, work ethic or mental preparation – the bottom can fall out of your game, your schoolwork, your job, whatever you’re doing.”
– Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan is widely regarded as one of the most successful athletes of all time. His run with the Chicago Bulls in the 90’s was legendary, and there is no one out there who can argue that he wasn’t successful at what he did.
And when you’re trying to accomplish goals… Whether they’re professional goals, relationship goals, hobby-related goals, or anything else… there are certain fundamental skills that are critical to success.
If you’re playing basketball and you want to improve your shooting, you can focus on things like proper foot alignment, leg bend, hand position, arm angle and follow through. (Jeff Haefner). These things all seem pretty small, but when you make sure that each aspect of your shot is technically sound, you’ll put yourself in a position to take your game to the next level.
If you’re working in the corporate world, there are fundamentals to your job. They may be things like clear communication via phone and email, setting proper expectations with stakeholders, and so on. If you start dropping the ball on communications, projects can fall apart and you’ll get less than stellar results.
At Gabrian International, we’re also focused on fundamentals.
We believe that some of the biggest keys to being successful in our business are pretty simple…1) To provide a quality product 2) To do it at a good price and 3) To do it with on-time deliveries.
We know that if we mess up in any of these three key areas, we’re toast.
So, by focusing on these fundamentals and having a staff that is fully bilingual and on-call 24-7, we’ve been able to grow our portfolio of business and maintain relationships with a great book of customers.
By not dropping the ball on customers like GE, UTC, Concept 2, Lite-O-Rama and Copernicus Educational Products, we’ve been able to maintain a working relationship with these companies for over 10 years. And we can look forward to continuing these relationships in the years to come.
If you focus on the fundamentals and constantly work to improve, you’ll be in a good position for growth over time.
It’s like “His Airness” also said:
“I’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.”
If you’re a professional who’s consistently focused on doing the best job you can, and learning as you go, you’ll develop your skills and will always be able to take your game to the next level.
At Gabrian, we’ve worked hard too.
After years of production and design experience, we’re able to anticipate issues before they occur. This gives us a huge strategic advantage over our competitors.
Our experience also allows us to suggest options that can help improve production cycle times without compromising product form or function, so that we can deliver products to our customers on time, with cost savings and the highest level of quality.
By focusing on the fundamentals of your business and consistently working hard to improve, you can achieve great success.
If it worked for Michael Jordan, it can work for us too.
