The term "one degree" is encompassed in two separate analogies: Water Boiling and a Compass.
Let me explain.....
If water is ONE DEGREE below the boiling point, it is not boiling. It is not moving, it is stagnant.
If a compass is off by ONE DEGREE, you could be travelling in the wrong direction.
Your business needs to be boiling. It needs to be ROLLING, MOVING, and ALIVE! If it is merely just warm, calm water, then you are NOT going to achieve your full potential!
Likewise, if you are moving and progressing, but your direction is off by just ONE DEGREE (like on a compass), then you may be completely off course and take longer to (or never) reach your intended destination in your business journey.
