"212° is not only a message of action - it's a message of persistent and additional action - the continual application of heat (effort) to whatever task or activity you undertake in order to achieve not only the primary objective you seek, but to reap the exponential rewards that are possible by applying one extra degree of effort."

~ Sam Parker & Mac Anderson, authors of '212: The Extra Degree';

The premise of 212° is very simple:

At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive.

So, it's about the power of one degree, or that tiny bit of extra effort that can make all the difference in our lives.

It's about raising our awareness and understanding that one extra bit of effort, one additional bit of action, can totally change our personal as well as professional results.

Some interesting action tips from the book:

1) Eliminate one half hour of television watching each day & get 182.5 hours each year to allocate elsewhere (equivalent to four & half weeks at work);

2) Complaining once less a day chokes off 365 seeds of negativity a year;
