What Can You Achieve in 10.8 Seconds?

Everyone knows that you can’t give more than 100%, simply by its definition. So why do we say “I’m going to give 110%?

In every business around the world, culture is hugely important. In some businesses its driven by a complex framework of company values, or through senior and middle management types who talk using ostentatious corporate speak. Quite often these values or this culture can feel “Imposed” on the employees.


It’s my belief that culture should be driven by people. Not just the Managers & Directors but all people at all levels in all offices. Fuel Card Services have been able to build a diverse and cohesive culture centred around progress and Continuous Improvement by doing just that.

“Continuous Improvement is better than delayed perfection” Mark Twain

Mark Twain put it perfectly when he said “Continuous Improvement is better than delayed perfection and that’s truly what we believe and what we embody.

If we all improve our technique or skill or personal approach by just 0.3% each day, by the end of the year we will all be giving 110% MORE than last year without really noticing. Imagine how little effort must be required to improve by less than half a percent.

We are dedicated to continuous improvement of ourselves and our business.

So how about this…

  • The average life expectancy in the UK is 81.5 years. 0.3% of that is just 89 days
  • 0.3% of a full 24-hour day is 4.32 minutes.
  • 0.3% of an hour is 10.8 seconds.

Whoever you are; whatever you do; whatever your aspirations in life may be. Ask yourself;

What can I achieve in 10.8 Seconds?

The answer can be… A 110% improvement in anything you want!

Here at FCS we encourage our teams to always strive to give 110% to their customers…..
