Today marks the two year anniversary of me writing my daily employee tweets every single day without missing one (actually they are more like daily blogs, but were originally going to be tweets which is where they got their initial title from for those who haven’t been here the full two years). I cannot believe I have actually made it for two full years!…
Tonight I went through my book of my tweets and I decided to pull out some of the quotes I shared in my daily messages from two years ago. I hope you enjoy them:
“You can have everything in life that you want if you will just help enough other people to get what they want.” – Zig Ziglar
“It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.” –Napoleon Hill
“It will all be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.” -unknown
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”
“Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.” -William Arthur Ward
“It`s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.” -Roy Disney
“Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting.” – Elizabeth Asquith Bibesco
“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” – Mother Teresa
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~William A. Ward
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The time is always right to do what is right.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
THE ONES WHO DOHere’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? We make tools for these kinds of people. While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
I closed with the poem “The Ones Who Do” because that particular poem has been one that inspired me greatly. And I have always seen all of us here at MediConnect as the Ones Who Do. We took a company that was barely hanging on by a thread back in 2004 and we turned it into a wildly successful company – and the best part is that we accomplished that while always trying to do the right thing, with integrity, with respect, and with caring for each other. The success of the business has been nice, but was has been even nicer has been the culture of integrity and grace that has come to be engrained in our company today. MediConnect is an amazing company and one that everyone can be proud to have helped to build. Let’s make the upcoming summer Demolition Derby Party a total celebration of the amazing company that all of you Ones Who Do have helped to make!
HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE – AND REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE FREAKING AWESOME!!! AND I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
