Some random things to share this week.


Thought for the Week: Success favors the bold. Similarity, commonality, generality, replicas, regularity and normalcy don’t.  –
Alan Stein


If you are working today.  If you are reading this….most likely you are extremely lucky and blessed.  You are not bedridden.  You are at work.  You can swallow on your own.  You can walk.  You can breathe on your own.  You are not grieving at someone’s bedside.  You have enough money to eat tonight.  You are not planning a funeral.

Millions of people on the planet RIGHT NOW…  CAN NOT DO WHAT YOU CAN TODAY.  YOU ARE BLESSED.

Mondays are a reminder of things YOU GET TO DO, not HAVE TO DO.

Thank your customers EVERY TIME.  Every minute, every chance you get…without them… you don’t work here.

If you count your blessings, your stress will go down.  YOU CAN’T BE BLESSED AND STRESSED.


Are you an expert in filling out forms, wearing your sealtbelt on the forklift, doubling checking your work and acknowledgements, are you the best at doing it right the first time… every time?  If you ARE NOT, you can probably get away with it now…but in 30 days we will be about 42% busier (see my last post)…and then you won’t have time to fix all your mistakes…

And then a shit storm will brew as you can’t control the chaos… because you are not organized.  You don’t have time to change your disorganized ways…?  Fine…but be warned… a shit storm is coming to you…and you will have created it.

p.s.  I can’t work out right now, I still have an injured back, it sometimes hurt, sometimes it’s just annoying.  But I CAN walk my dog.  I CAN enjoy the morning before the sun comes out.   I CAN READ more than usual.   I CAN.  I CAN. I CAN.

p.s.s.  A few of our team members are dealing with personal and family issues RIGHT NOW.  PRAY FOR THEM.  THEY NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
