Dr Dre, a producer known to frustrate artists in the vocal booth, even Busta Rhymes had to leave Aftermath records. Jay-z calls him a perfectionist. He got Snoop Dogg to repeat his verse on the song “Gin and Juice” over 113 times, the result of this includesclassic album, the discovery of one of the greatest and one of the highest selling Hip-Hop artistes of all time, Eminem.
After spending years in the studio he was declared the man with the best eardrum in the world, and this won him a multimillion dollar deal on earphones (Beats by Dre) and the title, The Most Respected producer in Hip-Hop. But he records an album ONLY once in about 6 years.
He mastered his arts.
If what you did yesterday still looks big to you today, then you haven’t done much today.
Understand “Kaizen”, an Asian term and theory that gave birth to Samsung, Toyota and Honda; it’s the Japanese art and culture of Continuous Improvement.
In Korean Taekwando, it is taught,
“Don’t be scared of a person who practices 100 kicks at a time, fear a person who practices one kick a 100 times”.
Like I’d say to any new member of our team, “you’re good and young; it’s not an option, that’s why you’re even here. But let’s move from good to great. Sadly, being “young” in Africa where the older ones cling to power is not a plus, to get a chance, to grow and compete with any age bracket or anywhere in the world lies on excellence, so move from being an amateur (local champion) to being a world class professional.
Amateurs work till they get it right; professionals work until they can’t get it wrong. #hexavianexcellence
Excellence is an attitude. Master your art! Keep going. We are what we repeatedly do. Practice makes perfect.
This is 12th Law out of the 21 HEXAVIAN LAWS OF BUSINESS. “The Law of Process and Continuous Improvement”.
