Recently I stopped at my favorite trucking line to pick up some shelves. I never knew why this truck yard was so different. Everyone is so friendly. Everything is clean. Every ONE is clean and neat. The drivers arrive early. They all wear uniforms and look like truck drivers looked in the black and white movies I used to watch with my grandparents. Often when I arrive they are having a cookout or potluck lunch. I have been so impressed with this company that I even spoke to a manager and asked how I could work there. (Sadly it required a long internship at this location, which is nearly 60 miles from my home. While it isn’t the right fit for me, it is certainly an impressive company. )
Why are they so different? What makes them so special, so excellent, so friendly? Well the other day I glanced to the right and saw their bulletin board. “What’s on your board”, has a lot to say about who you are and what you value. What you “have on your board” often says more about “you”, than the written words actually posted on the there.
Look closely, if you can and see what special messages are scattered around this board. I was not a bit surprised, and I was very encouraged, but it got me wondering; what’s on “my board”? What “message” am I “putting out there” for the world to see. What does “what I say…and do”, say about me?
What’s on your board?
PS: …they didn’t misspell “SEFL”…that is there initials.
