#1. Andrew Carnegie
We love this quote because Andrew Carnegie hints at a lot of depth and perspective by what %100 really means.
“The average person puts only %25 of his energy into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than %50 of their capacity and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote %100.”
#2. Steve Martin
Always be true to yourself and you will shine! Let’s be honest: No one else can be you.

#6. Martin Luther King Jr.
Whatever it is you are doing, do it BIG!
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

#13 Steve Jobs
Make sure you enjoy your work!
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
If you enjoy what you do, your work will show. Always!
“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”
