All I can say is WOW WOW WOW! Seeing the amazing teamwork last Friday with probably one of the busiest closing days of the year, was an absolute treat. We always talk about how no job is too big, but more importantly, no job is too small. We all stepped in, stepped up, stepped back, and stepped forward and adjusted with the day. Heard once that life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it. Think about that. We cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to it. We are continuously getting better. It’s is seriously so awesome. Like we always say, “Progress, not Perfection.”
As we grow, we are going to be bringing in new faces, new personalities, new skill sets, but everyone we bring in will share the same views on our culture and overall outlook on what’s important to our core values. Our core values make up our culture. We are an ego-less, honest, hard-working, well rewarded, much respected company that sees and also, brings out the best in everyone we touch. We are limitless, yet set healthy boundaries. We are fighters, yet choose our battles well. We are leaders, yet know when to follow. We are all a part of the SimpleTown Family.
There are going to be days where we will be asked to help fellow teammates who have untimely absences from work, and because we can all step in and do whatever task for the day that needs to be done, that is what we mean by ego-less. That happened on Friday and as we all came together, we were able to fight through anything thrown our way. That is because of the team we have put in place and continue to build upon. We have great depth. We have a pack of leaders. We have people who genuinely want to get better every single day. Think about it. We all want to literally get better every single day of our lives and we know the greater good touches everyone.
Team, have a great Monday morning. Please remember that you are appreciated. Your hard work, integrity and attitude are all choices you have the gift of making every day you wake up. Those choices will not only reap rewards, but bring along with it a ripple effect to everyone we touch, and ultimately, we will remain respected. Will leave you with this quote by James Baldwin that hit me hard over the weekend.
“Those who say it can’t be done are usually interrupted by other’s doing it”
It’s a WE thing.
