“When it comes to quality, 99.9% just isn’t good enough.” Is 99.9% a reasonable goal? What does it mean?
If all things in life were done right 99.9% of the time, this is what we would have to accept:
1 hour of unsafe drinking water every month.
2 unsafe plane landings per day.
16,000 pieces of mail lost by the Post Office every hour.
20,000 incorrect prescriptions every year.
500 incorrect operations each week.
50 babies dropped at birth every day.
22,000 checks deducted from the wrong bank account each hour.
32,000 missed heartbeats per person each year.
Suddenly the quest for “zero defects” makes a lot of sense!
So if you want something, and you putting in 99.9% of your efforts, it won’t just do.
If you really want 100% result you need to put 100% efforts
