Engaging positively is the art that helps you make everything better, all the time. Well... It definitely helps in giving it a shot.

Plussing. The every day art of improving just about everything all of the time

Sometimes, when you wake up… … it’s a little tougher than you’d like

You may even find yourself in a meeting… … that doesn’t quite engage you fully

And you ask yourself: “What have I done”? “ What will my next step be?”

Engage! In the words of the famous Dutch philosopher-soccer player Johan Cruijff: “If you want to score, you’ll have to shoot at the goal!” Equally philosophical, with a much nicer logo:

Plussing. Is that even American? Walt Disney thought so! “ Somewhere during the 1940s, Walt coined the term ‘plussing’. (…) To ‘plus’ something is to improve it. ‘Plussing’ means giving your customers more than they paid for, more than they expect, more than you have to give them.” (How to be like Walt, 2004: page 154)
