All progress is due to those who were not satisfied to let well enough alone. “Acorns were good until bread was found,” said Sir Francis Bacon. The majority of men fail because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to improve those that succeed.
If you can’t think up a new idea, find a way to make better use of an old one. “Where we cannot invent, we may at least improve,” said Charles Caleb Colton.
Don’t look for the answer to your problems; look for many answers, then choose the best one. Do more than is required and continue doing it. “The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra,” says Zig Ziglar.
There is always a way-then there is always a better way. When you have found something-look again. School is never out! The more you truly desire something. The more you will try to find a better way. ADSENSE
The biggest enemy of best is good. If you are satisfied with what’s good, you will never have what’s best. “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts,” says John Wooden.

“Show me a thoroughly satisfied man, and I will show you a failure,” said Thomas Edison. “There are two kinds of men who never amount to very much,” Cyrus H.K Curtis remarked to his associates, Edward Bok. “And what kinds are those?” inquired Bok. “Those who cannot do what they are told,” replied the famous publisher, “and those who can do nothing else.” Find a better way, and make that way better.
