Alison Levine on Complacency 

  • “…mountaineering, business, leadership, and life: fear is fine, but complacency will kill you. Don’t ever beat yourself up for feeling scared or intimidated. Fear is a natural human emotion, and it’s a strong survival instinct that keeps us alert and aware of our surroundings.”
  • “Avoiding complacency isn’t just about keeping yourself in check; it also means watching out for all of your teammates.” 
  • “Ironically, complacency is a risk that skyrockets when things are going well—when you feel safe enough.”
  • “You’ll never improve your skills if you keep following your standard route. And getting out of your comfort zone is not enough; you must take it a step further and learn to be comfortable with discomfort. This is an important part of leader development”

To learn more about Alison’s theory, check out her article about complacency: Fear is fine. But complacency will kill you.

Alison Levine on Leadership

  • “Leadership is everyone’s responsibility. It is not solely the responsibility of the C-level executives or the management team within an organization. We are all in a position to proactively work toward having a positive effect on the people around us. Everyone in an organization is responsible for helping to move forward with the mission; but in addition, all employees/ teammates/ people must realize it is also their responsibility to look out for the people on either side of them.”
  • “You want to get out on the route with people who are better and stronger than you are; you yourself can become better and stronger by observing others who are more experienced and more skilled.”
  • “Weak colleagues are not hard to identify. I don’t want to be cruel here, but let’s face it: there’s always that one person who seems to show up on every team—you know, the person everyone else secretly wishes would quit, transfer to another division, or get trapped under something heavy. These people, to put it bluntly, are liabilities in terms of the job you are trying to do. They lag behind, drag everybody else down, and hinder progress.”
  • She continues, “If only they could perform at a higher level, or be smarter, or work more efficiently—or, even better, just go away—the entire team would be so much more productive. And happier! And although it may be painful to even imagine this, there could even be a time when, in fact, you might be the one who can’t cut it—when you are the person everyone else wishes would just go away, even if you are trying your hardest.”

Wrapping It Up

Start With Inspiration

When building a company culture, where do you start? Do you start with inspiration? A purpose? Can you get behind a cause and give everything you’ve got? More importantly, can you inspire your team as well as your customers to feel your passion? Share a belief in your cause? 

In our last post, we provided a book review on the New York Times bestseller, “Start With Why“. The amazing book authored by Simon Sinek reveals stories of companies and individuals who truly inspire.

This led to the question, does your WHY = Inspiration?

In other words, should our inspiration define our WHY?

If so, then we need to “Start With Inspiration”. Start With Passion. Start with an undying belief in a cause. 

The book “Start With Why” describes companies that inspire by revealing a strong purpose and belief. 

Simon Sinek also offers examples of historical individuals that inspire such as Ronald Reagan, Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy. 

However, we don’t necessarily need to look back in the deep past for sources of inspiration. 

So far for 2019, what individuals do you feel “Start With Inspiration”? 

To Start With Inspiration = Katelyn Ohashi

To “Start With Inspiration”, look no further than college athletics. 

Though Clemson’s shellacking of Alabama was impressive in the NCAA Football National Championship , they did not win our vote for first place. 

UCLA gymnast, Katelyn Ohashi earned our first place vote. 

Katelyn kicked off 2019 with an amazing floor performance. By the way, she scored a PERFECT 10. 

To prove our theory on “Start With Inspiration”, feast your eyes on this masterpiece: 

Katelyn Captured the Hearts of Millions of Americans

Katelyn absolutely crushes it! 

What came to your mind watching her perform? 

  • Playful
  • Confident 
  • Style
  • Grace
  • Determination 
  • Relentless
  • Moxie 
  • Fun 
  • Contagious enthusiasm
  • Perfection!

Tina Turner, Earth, Wind and Fire, the Jackson 5 and Janet Jackson for her song selection. Awesome playlist! 

Wall Street Journal sports journalist, Jason Gay sums up Katelyn’s perfect performance with this outstanding article: 

A Must-See Gymnast, and the Meaning of Joy

“I think Ohashi’s routine is a radiant expression of what it means for a human being to be very, very good at something—and to want to share that with everyone. She projects a confidence that only great performers project, whether Olympic champions or concert pianists, that every eye is upon them. Instead of shirking from that, instead of getting rattled, Ohashi rushes toward the moment. The moment becomes her.”  Jason Gay – Wall Street Journal 

Likewise, check out all of the articles about Katelyn’s performance from the numerous major publications below: 

In addition, she even made an appearance on Good Morning America

Applying Katelyn’s Enthusiasm to Your Company  

As entrepreneurs is it possible to score a perfect 10 performance like Katelyn? 

Inspire customers.

Motivate employees.

Also, build a team with enthusiasm like Katelyn’s teammates at UCLA. 

Did you notice her teammates in the background?

They are dancing, singing and cheering her on. Doing her moves with her while sharing her energy and enthusiasm.

Even though gymnastics is an individual performance, the UCLA Bruins demonstrate what it means to be a team.

Furthermore, Katelyn has overcome great odds to lay out that magical performance. 

“Katelyn Ohashi Was the Best Gymnast in the World, Until She Wasn’t” is a video that describes her troubled career as a gymnast. 

An amazing story! 

Additionally in the video, legendary UCLA gymnastics coach,Valorie Kondos Field, talks about building a team based on passion and trust (at the 3:42 mark on this video below):

To close, we extend a big THANK YOU to Katelyn for her poise, grace, determination and PERFECTION. 

Katelyn defined how to “Start With Inspiration”.

Most of all, we thank her for being her best self while having an absolute blast doing so. 

Well Done Katelyn!

Walmart, The Unlikely Beginning

The Early Beginnings of Walmart. Walton's 5&10 Store.

Before there was a Walmart there was Walton’s 5&10. Sam Walton had previous retail experience. Therefore, Sam Walton opened the Walton’s 5&10 in Bentonville Arkansas.

Why Bentonville of all places? It had everything Sam and his wife Helen wanted. It had a small town charm which pleased Helen. Also, the location was ideal for Sam’s love of hunting.

Due to the success of Walton’s 5&10 Sam Walton was inspired. Walton wanted to bring even more savings to people. Therefore, he opened the first Walmart in 1962.

The First Walmart

Grand opening of the first store.

This first store was located in Rogers Arkansas. Sam Walton had many naysayers in the early days. His competition didn’t believe he could be successful with the mindset of giving it’s customers a great product at a low price.

Growing the Walmart Family

Sign at the home office.

By 1967 the Walton family owned 24 stores. All of which were making a profit. Therefore, Sam Walton’s competition had been proven wrong. As it turned out Walton was right in thinking people wanted a value in their products. This led to many more advances with the business.

In 1971 the first distribution center opened. It was located in Bentonville along with a Home Office. Furthermore, the growth was being noticed in the stock market as well. The stock continued to steadily increase. Therefore, by the end of the 1970s, the Walton family began the Walmart Foundation.

Continuing the Legacy

Sam Walton makes good on his promise to hula on Wall Street.

In the 80’s, Sam Walton’s business was extremely profitable. So much so that the Walton’s made a decision to open a new chain of stores. Those stores are still known today as Sam’s Club.

Also, by the 1980s there were over 270 Walmart locations with over 20,000 employees. Due to a large number of stores and employees, Sam Walton found new ways to keep everyone motivated. In 1984 Sam Walton wore a traditional hula outfit on Wall Street as he performed a hula dance. Why would the owner of a large company do such a thing? He had made a promise to his employees. That promise was if they reached a goal of “a pre-tax profit of 8% for the previous fiscal year” he would perform this dance in front of everyone.

Sam Walton

Sam Walton was the founder of Walmart. He valued his customers as well as his employees. Therefore, he encouraged his employees to be great leaders. He also encouraged them to be successful.

Walton also believed that the customer should come first. In addition, he believed that the customers’ needs should be the most important thing in not only his business but in every business. Without customers how can any business flourish? Furthermore, Walton encouraged all leaders to be successful by putting their customers first. Using this strategy, the company of Walmart that we know flourished.

Sam Walton on Customers

Customers are the main focus.

Sam Walton believed that customers were the most important part of any company. Therefore, there are many memorable quotes that focus on them. Furthermore, he knew how to continue to be successful. Not only did Sam Walton speak about the importance of customers he also ran his business with that at the forefront.

* There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else.

*  The goal as a company is to have customer service that is not just the best, but legendary.

* Exceed your customer’s expectations. If you do, they’ll come back over and over. Give them what they want – and a little more.

* If one of our customers comes into the store without a smile, I’ll give them one of mine.

* If you don’t listen to your customers, someone else will.

* Each Walmart store should reflect the values of its customers and support the vision they hold for their community.

Sam Walton on Success

Walmart has shown success throughout the years.

Sam Walton had many things to say about success. He believed that success was directly related to hard work. Also, Walton knew that with time things change. Therefore, in business, you need to be flexible as well as ready for those changes. Furthermore, Walton knew while keeping up with changes you need to also be able to continue to put the customers’ needs first.

* You can’t just keep doing what works one time, everything around you is changing. To succeed, stay out in front of change.

* To succeed in this world, you have to change all the time.

* Celebrate your success and find humor in your failures. Don’t take yourself so seriously. Loosen up and everyone around you will loosen up. Have fun and always show enthusiasm. When all else fails, put on a costume and sing a silly song.

* The secret of successful retailing is to give your customers what they want. And really, if you think about it from the point of view of the customer, you want everything: a wide assortment of good quality merchandise; the lowest possible prices; guaranteed satisfaction with what you buy; friendly, knowledgeable service; convenient hours; free parking; a pleasant shopping experience.

* The key to success is to get out into the store and listen to what the associates have to say. It’s terribly important for everyone to get involved. Our best ideas come from clerks and stock boys.

* If you want a successful business, your people must feel that you are working for them – not that they are working for you.

Sam Walton on Leadership

Leadership is important to success.

Good leaders are essential to a good business. Walton knew that if you take care of your employees, they, in turn, will take care of you. Therefore, he had a lot of positive advice for leaders. Along with leading, Walton believed that leaders were responsible for keeping other employees on the track for success. Furthermore, he knew good leaders produce good employees. Also, good employees produce good customers.

* Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.

* Communicate everything you can to your associates. The more they know, the more they care. Once they care, there is no stopping them.

* Leaders must always put their people before themselves. If you do that, your business will take care of itself.

* Nothing else can quite substitute for a few well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise. They’re absolutely free and worth a fortune.

* There’s absolutely no limit to what plain, ordinary, working people can accomplish if they’re given the opportunity and encouragement to do their best.

* If you love your work, you’ll be out there every day trying to do it the best you possibly can, and pretty soon everybody around will catch the passion from you – like a fever.

Consultants Who Impacted Manufacturing

Manufacturers commonly rely on consultants to help advance their business strategies.

Let’s take a step back in time to look at several legendary business consultants.

Three prominent management consultants from the 20th century who left a lasting legacy include W. Edwards Deming, Peter Drucker and Tom Peters.

As a business logistics major in college during the 1990’s, these individuals appeared frequently as hot topics throughout business classes.

Each of these three consultants found international success with their influence as well as pioneering ideas on business management practices

In particular, each of these individuals left a significant impact on manufacturers. Even today, all three consultants continue to heavily influence decisions at our company.

W. Edwards Deming

W. Edwards Deming is considered by many to be the master of continual improvement of quality, as well as overall operation efficiency.

In June 1980, the acclaimed documentary “If Japan Can, Why Can’t We” reintroduced Dr. Deming to America. He quickly became the voice of quality and sparked the quality revolution.

Deming consulted with clients such as Ford, Xerox and Proctor & Gamble.

In particular, Deming played a major role in the resurgence of the American automobile industry in the late 1980’s. Below includes several of our favorite quotes from Deming:

  • “A Bad System Will Beat a Good Person Every Time”
  • “Two basic rules of life are: 1) Change is inevitable. 2) Everybody resists change.”
  • “Eighty-five percent of the reasons for failure are deficiencies in the systems and process rather than the employee. The role of management is to change the process rather than badgering individuals to do better.”

Peter Drucker


Another consultant from the 20th century who left a lasting legacy includes Peter Drucker.

Peter Drucker, commonly referred to as the “father of management“, authored 39 books. Above all, he wrote 30 books AFTER the age of 60. That’s inspiration!

The impressive Drucker client list included a line up of corporate giants such as Sears, IBM, GM, GE, Intel, Coca-Cola, and Proctor & Gamble. 

Furthermore, Drucker delivered ground breaking views on motivation, efficiency and time management.

He is also credited with coining the term “knowledge worker“.

Check out this fantastic article about Peter Drucker from the Harvard Business Review: What Peter Drucker Knew About 2020.

Drucker’s books serve not only corporate warriors, but also entrepreneurs as well.

For example, his 1985 book “Innovation and Entrepreneurship” deserves the role as mandatory reading for every entrepreneur.

Below includes a list of the many incredible quotes from Peter Drucker:

  • “Doing the right thing is more important than doing the thing right.”
  • “If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.”
  • “There is nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency something that should not be done at all.”
  • “Results are gained by exploiting opportunities, not by solving problems.”
  • “So much of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to work.”
  • “Meetings are by definition a concession to a deficient organization. For one either meets or one works. One cannot do both at the same time.”

Tom Peters

Lastly, Tom Peters co-authored one of the greatest business books of all time, “In Search of Excellence: Lessons from America’s Best-Run Companies”. This book served as required reading for business majors in the 1990’s.

Tom Peters client list includes the Hersey Company, Rolls-Royce Aerospace, Texas Instruments and the U.S. Army.

Several excellent quotes from Tom Peters include:

Inspiring Business Quotes

Inspiring Business Quotes Help Conquer Tough Times

Who doesn’t love quotes of inspiration and motivation?

For example:

Of course, one of the classic motivational speeches of all time comes from Bluto (John Belusi) in the 1978 movie “Animal House”.

Bluto: “What? Over? Did you say ‘over’? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!… It ain’t over now, ’cause when the goin’ gets tough, (long pause)….the tough get goin’. Who’s with me? Let’s go! Come on!…”(He ran to the front door but no one followed him). If you grew up in the 70’s, this scene may bring a smile to your face.

Anyway, some great business quotes serve not only as an excellent source of inspiration but they also help put things in perspective during challenging times.

Serving as a U.S. manufacturer since 1985, we targeted our list of favorite business quotes from entrepreneurs who helped revolutionized their industries.

Henry FordBusiness Quotes

Henry Ford is a must for any list of favorite business quotes. In particular, Ford was known for his insightful one-liners. Henry Ford delivered a wealth of outstanding quotes:

  • “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said ‘faster horses.”
  • “If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”
  • “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goals.”
  • “Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.”
  • “Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice.”
  • “Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.”
  • “Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”

  • Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends, there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
  • Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.
