Consider This

Robert Stevenson’s Thoughts on the Pursuit of Excellence


Vainglorious

June 28, 2020

by Robert Stevenson

So, you’re the boss, the head person in charge. Have you ever thought about how you got there? Have you ever considered all the people who helped to push your career along, until you finally made it? Have you ever given any consideration to the support personnel you have on staff who make you look good, make you look efficient, make you look smart, every day? The folks who handle the little, tedious, or sometimes annoying things that need to be handled, so you can concentrate on the big stuff … have you ever thought about them?



The Same Thing

June 2, 2020

by Robert Stevenson

Experience has taught me that we should always be striving to improve, move forward, stretch our limitations, try something new or different and doing the “SAME” thing is a deterrent to all of those. As Dr. Seuss said, “Why fit in, when you were born to stand out?”

It Better Be Packaged Right

Joshua Bell is a world-renowned American violinist who made his Carnegie Hall debut at the age of 17. He has performed with the world’s premiere orchestras and conductors and is also a Grammy winner. He fills the greatest concert halls in the world where the average seat will cost $100, and front row seats cost in the thousands.



Welcome Criticism

March 1, 2020

by Robert Stevenson

Welcome criticism? Those are two words that are hard to swallow. Don't you just hate criticism? I mean, think about it. It doesn't make you feel good. You tend to question the agenda of the person giving it; is their intention to help them look better in the eyes of others at your expense? Pure and simple, criticism is a painful experience. So why should we welcome it?
