Real Perspective From One of the Big Boys

Our roles as fathers, brothers, sons, husbands, etc. are infinitely more important than our roles at work.  At the end of our journey I assure you ‘Best Buy’ will appear nowhere on your gravestone.”
—Steve Jensen, VP of Best Buy, quoted in Interview With Tyler Shaw by Cali & Jody

Or mothers, sisters, daughters, wives. Like he said.

I want to help your business (and mine!) to soar in this new year. I believe in it with all my heart. Once in a while, I read something like this, and it reminds me to step away from the keyboard, the drawing board, and the work I take home. I take it home so I can be at home. It can wait until after The Kid goes to bed.

At the end of the journey, let it say that you were loved, and that you took time to love. Not that you were a slave to your career.

 

Grow wisely, and be well,
