Go the extra mile

(Originally posted April 9, 2006)

Definition: Go above and beyond what is needed/required

Example: "To get more customers, we must go the extra mile, do the things beyond what is expected of us. If we don't, we won't stand out, and customers can go anywhere else."

Origin: This one came from the Bible, specifically, Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, when He said, "And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain." (Matthew 5:41) Thus, you went the extra mile.
