In between the success of "Gavin and Stacey" and "Carpool Karaoke," Late Late Show host James Corden suffered several career setbacks.

These film and tv flops sent Corden into a downward spiral and saw him turn to alcohol and a series of messy relationships.

"Loads of people around me were telling me how great I was, and I believed them, but the public weren’t buying what I’d written," says Corden.

"Suddenly I realised the work I was doing simply wasn’t good enough. I wasn’t taking enough care and was cutting corners."

"As soon as I refocused on producing the best quality work that I could, the success came back," concludes Corden.

Whether its the boardroom or a blank canvas, quality is a great strategy for business and life.
