The quality and the quantity of service you give, and
the spirit in which it is you give it will greatly
determine the price and the length of employment you
will receive. To market your services effectively,
meaning a permanent market, receiving a satisfactory
price, under pleasant conditions, you must adopt and
follow the “QQS” formula: QUALITY plus QUANTITY, plus
the proper SPIRIT of cooperation, equals perfect
salesmanship of service. Remember the “QQS” formula,
 but do more - APPLY IT AS A HABIT!

Hill brakes down this formula for us:


  1. QUALITY meaning the performance of every detail,
    in connection with your position, in the most
    efficient manner possible, with the object of
    greater efficiency always in mind. Or, “How you
    anything is how you do everything.”

  2. QUANTITY meaning to make it your habit to give all
    the service of which you are capable, always,
    and with the purpose of increasing the amount of service
    given as greater skill is developed through practice
    and experience. Put the emphasis on the word
    habit. Or, “Being all-in” always.

  3. SPIRIT meaning to make it your habit to be agreeable,
    live in harmonious conduct to induce cooperation from
    associates and fellow employees. Or, “Do unto
    others as you would have them do unto you!”

I am mindful of the story of 4 birds sitting on a fence. One
bird spoke, “I am hunger.” All the others agree. Another said,
“I saw some freshly turned soil in that field.” The third stated,
“Maybe some big worm over there.” The 4h said, “I think I will
do over there and see.” Here is the question, “How many birds
left on the fence?” None of them, because the fourth bird only decided
to see, he did not actually go.

According to Hill in this chapter, we are called to take our
desire, mix it with faith, plant it in our subconscious mind
with our self-talk, make to a definite plan, and stir it with
action backed with persistence.

Hill wrote, “Right here is the point at which the majority of
men meet with failure, because of their lack of PERSISTENCE in
creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.”

To keep our dreams alive, apply the QQS formula daily. Be on the
