Tough times, quality times

In good economic times, mediocrity can survive. There's so much business to go around that you can be sloppy and still get by.

In tougher times, however, you need quality, not quantity. A great performance will still reap rewards and profit. A great performance ensures that you'll retain the client. A great performance is your best chance at growing the amount of business you do with that client.

A mediocre performance means you're not profitable. Mediocrity means you'll be bid out or, even worse, fired.

Less is more when the economy is bad: Great work being performed by a few people can be invaluable. Sloppy work being done by a lot of people is a lay-off waiting to happen.
