--Doug Collins, member ofrepparttar '72 U.S. Olympic team that ultimately lostrepparttar 137398 gold medal on a disputed call torepparttar 137399 Soviet Union, describesrepparttar 137400 dramatic moments atrepparttar 137401 end ofrepparttar 137402 game. We're losing by one. The Soviets haverepparttar 137403 ball. The clock's running out. I hide behindrepparttar 137404 center, bait a guy into throwing a pass, knock it loose and grab it. A Russian goes under me as I'm going up forrepparttar 137405 lay-up. I'm KO'd for a second. The coaches run to me. John Bach, one ofrepparttar 137406 assistants, says, 'We gotta get somebody to shootrepparttar 137407 fouls." But coach Hank Iba says, 'If Doug can walk, he'll shoot.' That electrified me. The coach believed in me. I can't even remember feeling any pressure. Three dribbles, spinrepparttar 137408 ball, toss it in, same as in my backyard. I hit 'em both and gotrepparttar 137409 lead. I didn't know what I was made of until then." –deep results.

--Herb Rammrath, a General Electric client of mine inrepparttar 137410 late 1980s, told me this. "I was a young Naval officer reporting with many other new sailors aboard an aircraft carrier. The captain met us in a formation onrepparttar 137411 flight deck. He shook my hand and went downrepparttar 137412 line greeting many other sailors. I didn't think anything of it until several weeks later when he passed by me in a passageway. He said, ‘Hi, Herb!' I never forgot that. He remembered my name despiterepparttar 137413 fact that he had met scores of new sailors that day. It's made a tremendous impact on me till this day." –deep results.

--Seeing abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison dragged with a rope down a Boston Street, Wendell Phillips became so outraged that he joinedrepparttar 137414 abolitionist movement and became one of its most effective activists. –deep results.

Many people go through their careers ignorant of deep results. But when you view your career as a whole, don't you think thatrepparttar 137415 ultimate yardstick of your life should be deep results? Deep results are not about getting but giving, not about doing but becoming, not about material accumulation but aboutrepparttar 137416 enrichment of human relationships.
