We are blessed to have spent the month of February in Phoenix. We welcomed several visitors and enjoyed missing several snow storms.
While we both worked each day, we regularly noted how blessed we are that we can leave Fort Wayne and the business continues. Customers were cared for, trucks dispatched, loads safely delivered, new team members & drivers joined our fleet, bills were paid, the list goes on and on. Thank you. Thank you for all you do. You are appreciated.
While we were in Phoenix and had the opportunity to disconnect a bit, we came across the below list and it really struck us as valuable. These simple actions say so much about a person.
10 Actions That Cost Nothing But Will Earn You Respect (Source Unknown):
- Work Ethic
- Body Language
- Willingness to be Coached
- Willingness Do Extra
- Being Prepared
These are true regardless of your talent, education, experience, length of time in your current position, job title, career aspirations, working environment, duties, etc. This same list holds true for paid positions, within volunteer organizations, your role within your family and beyond.
The actions listed above are so simply executed -- yet will make such a difference. Each is a decision that can only be made by you.
We challenge you to honestly identify which item(s) above you need to grow in; and then commit to it for the next 30 days. Write it on a sticky note and leave it in a place where you'll be reminded of it daily. Take mindful action, every day, for 30 days and see what a difference it will make. We are eager to hear what you've chosen and hope you'll send us a note highlighting your progress.
Thank you for all you do to make this company what it is today. We appreciate you.
Geary & Becky
