I heard a story about Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick Fil A.  He was sitting around a table with some of the executives of his company.  He sat there quietly listening as they debated strategies for seeking to grow Chik Fil A.

Mr. Cathy decided he had finally heard enough.  With passion, he pounded his fist on the board room table.  All eyes were on the founder and CEO.  Words of wisdom proceeded from his mouth.

“If we get better, our customers will demand we get bigger.” – Truett Cathy


Chick Fil has continued to expand their brand and their profits.  The reason?  Because they pursue better before bigger.  The by-product of getting better will naturally be to get bigger.

Wise words from a wise man.

How can you or your organization get better this week?
