Going the Extra Mile
I always believe in going the extra mile in everything that I do. If it doesn’t kill you, it won’t hurt you. If fact, in sya Allah it will give you the added advantage over everyone else.
That is why I chose GEMs as my group’s name last year. It means “Going the Extra Mile”.. I am prepared to live up to that name, no matter what the challenges being thrown at me. And I know my teammates will do too!
Going the Extra Mile. GEM is a very memorable, neat and powerful acronym for all sorts of situations relating to effort, quality, commitment, motivation, development, design, creativity, selling, customer service, leading, inspiring, teaching – in fact any activity, responsibility, project or task which benefits from extra thought, enthusiasm and energy, to produce an effect beyond usual expectations or standards. GEM appears in themes and promotional messages for a variety of situations because it’s an elegant impactful statement underpinned by a very potent concept – that of always striving to do better – to ‘over-deliver’ and to exceed expectations, in the (very correct) belief that doing so will produce great outcomes for the giver and receiver; supplier and customer. GEM is especially relevant for beating competition and delighting customers. It’s also a wonderful maxim for building self-esteem, integrity, respect, credibility, reputation and positive human relationships. GEM is actually an attitude for life as a whole: if a job is worth doing then it’s worth doing in the best way you can. GEM people are noticed and remembered; they become trusted and valued, and accordingly, GEM, simple though it seems, is a wonderful life-code.
Now my target is set on the Free trip to Austria & Hungary. I am going theextra mile to make sure that I will get it. I am also prepared to go the extra mile to help my teammates and anyone that wants to join the bandwagon to qualify as well.
