I have considered and define the following words as central to why-I-do what-I-do:
WISDOM: Discovering timeless answers revealed through present-day challenges.
SERVICE: Fulfilling needs with the gift of minds, muscles, and minutes.
OPTIMISM: Gasoline for the engine of perseverance.
INTEGRITY: A hard-wired response of knowing what we ought to do and actually doing it.
EXCELLENCE: An ever-upward climb towards perfection, demonstrated by our work, performed in an imperfect world.
VERSATILITY: Realizing that your hammer, if turned over, can also pull nails.
COMMITMENT: An unshakable dedication to keeping the promises we make.
WINNING: The tide that lifts all ships.
What are your defining words?
