templeton-planWe have been highlighting John Templeton’s theory of “Investing the Extra Ounce,” found in his book The Templeton Plan. He summarizes the lessons in the chapter with these three points of advice:

1. To be outstandingly successful you must work just a little harder than those who are moderately successful. Learn to give one extra ounce and your rewards will be all out of proportion to that ounce.

2.  The extra ounce results in producing higher quality in all lines of work.

3.  If you give the extra ounce, your morale will be high and the teamwork you can achieve with fellow workers is bound to be extraordinary.
