My Primary Aim

When I get up in the morning, I’d like to get up before everyone else and get the day started. Make breakfast. Take out the garbage. Clean up the kitchen. Take the kids to school. I’d like to go the office and sit at my desk, and make calls. Talk to customers. Answer my employee’s questions. I want to be able to visit customers and hear from them how they like our service. But I don’t want to do that every day. Some days, I’d like to stay home and putter around the house. Working on cars. Cleaning up the yard. Building a project in the shop. At the end of the day, I want to eat dinner with my family and go through the nightly ritual. Then I’d like to spend time with Danielle and play a game or watch a movie.

When I’m older, I’d like to be able to say I successfully ran a company and had a great family. I’d like to know and say that my family was my number one.

I’d like to spend more time with the people I love, both family and friends. I’d like to have get togethers and talk and laugh. I’d like to have lunches with fellow business-(wo)men. I’d like to get to know my customers and my employees. I’d like to help those around me.

I don’t want people to “think” about me. But should they do it, I hope they are thoughts that only produce positive images.

Two years from now, I’d like to be starting my own family. I’d like to be at a point where my business has grown and I have several people working for me. Ten years from now, I’d like to be a larger company that people want to work for. Twenty years from now, I’d like to retire, or find a way to live like I am retired. When my life comes to a close… I just want to smile and say I had a good life. And I know I will.

I’d like to learn more about life and how me as a person can be a part of the life around me and positively affect those around me. I’d like to be healthy. I’d like to be comfortable and wise. I’d like to grow old with my wife and cherish each other and the rest of our family.
