With an ever-changing world around us, it is even more important now than ever to look at the big picture and the goals that have been carefully set and continually evaluate progress and validity. For this we must ask ourselves:
Partnerships present the involved parties with special challenges and responsibilities. To create lasting partnerships, one has to honestly negotiate and openly consider the other sides position and views. To be a good partner or friend, it can’t always be pleasant. “Today I may be the shoulder to cry on and comfort you, tomorrow I may have to pull a rotten tooth to help”.
Integrity is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations, and outcomes. We regard integrity as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions. In this context, integrity is the inner sense of “wholeness” deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character.
Mea culpa: Anything that happens to us is part of our doing or just by being involved. So it always is part “mea culpa” or my mistake, my doing. Look at and study your own actions first before complaining of others.
Fear is nothing to be afraid of but fear itself. I learned that in my very early days in business.
Believe in yourself and believe in what you do.
Focus on the positive; look forward as anything that has happened is already in the past. Learn from it, but don’t dwell.
Be honest in everything you do. It also makes life simpler as you don’t have to remember any lies.
Many people talk about how important our planet is and what should be done to reduce our impact on global warming. It may well be that we are not solely responsible for the entire current trend of a warming planet; but we certainly play a noteworthy part in it.
“Rather than just talk about what should be done, I decided to do my part. I have been fortunate with early success in business and many rounds of tough education and learning from both taking calculated risks (‘just doing’) and being blessed with great mentors and peers.
Now it is time to make our difference and do our part for the planet by ‘doing’!” -Josef Reschreiter, President & CEO
