Right now I am studying a positive attitude book. Talk about eye opening. I have always considered myself to be a positive person; I am realizing that the journey is just beginning. The largest part of what we do at Mid-States is help people. Contractors, architects and developers would cover the majority of the people that I work with. If I am not positive all the time there is zero chance that I will be helpful or enjoyable to work with. Not to mention zero fun. Think about the people we work with at our companies. The people we rely on to help us help our customers. How much does our attitude toward them influence our effectiveness as a team?
Invest in yourself. Study things that will be helpful to you.

Read Quotes From Winston Churchill and think about how fast your HR manager would have to fire him for offending everyone.
