As we approach the new year many of us look to set resolutions. Things that we look to better ourselves or our situations for the new upcoming year. As my wife came home this afternoon the kitchen island littered with pc’s and parts. A few old clients called with some issues with a PC in their office. Being that I had repaired in the past they had taken this to a local repair shop to only continue to have issues. As I started to work on this PC to repair the issues that were present, I began to notice things that slowly picked at me. Call it my minute OCD but the birds nest of wires off the power supply (something I have always been a stickler about) suddenly I found myself with some zip ties and going to work. With my son watching over shoulder questioning everything I do, so this was a life lesson I saw the opportunity to give. When you take pride in what you do, even if no one ever sees it you still know you did the best you could.
So why is it that it seems in these trying times in our economy most seem to be all about the quick turn around and the all mighty dollar, not the hard work and quality. As this was how I was brought up, I continue to take pride in all I do. And pass this down to my kids.
What are your resolutions? And what do you think about taking short cuts to have a quick turn around as a result possibly making a customer unhappy because they now have to take their work to someone else?
