If I had to choose but one of the seventeen principles of success and rest my chances on that principle alone, I would, without hesitation, choose going the extra mile, because this is the principle through which one can make himself indispensable to others.”

This declaration alone should direct your attention to Judith Williamson's book Going The Extra Mile: The Do It Now Principle, designed to put you on the road to success.

You will gain a detailed understanding as to why developing the habit of consistently going the extra mile (GEM) promises to deliver more than you have actually contributed. The ideas in this book will make a huge difference in your life:

  1. As you contribute more than is expected, others take notice
  2. You will stand apart from the “That’s not my job” type of employee
  3. You will gather higher levels of tangible and intangible compensation into your life
  4. You will develop your skill set at an exponential speed and volume from your competition

Former Napoleon Hill Foundation executive and expert, Judith Williamson, details how to put this principle to work in various arenas of your life,


  • Why the “Do It Now” principle can make an instant difference in your results
  • The three essential elements of GEM---Quality of service, quantity of service and positive mental attitude.
  • How the discovery of your mission contributes to GEM.
  • Why it’s essential to see the inherent value in work to GEM.
  • How developing the habit of gratitude is both a cause and a result of GEM.
  • And much more!
