Keep it Interesting Wed, Jan 14, 2015
Last week we had the opportunity to go to Agenda. For those of you who don't know, Agenda is one of the largest Skate/Action Sports trade shows in the world. I spent 12 years in that industry and one of the things that has always drawn me towards it is the fact that it is driven by passion and innovation. The majority of companies and successful people in that industry are pretty unconventional. While at agenda we were able to listen to a couple of innovators in that industry talk about their motivation and paths to success. There were a couple of quotes or themes that really stuck out to me.
#1 "Keep yourself interested"
This is something that applies to more than SlideBelts, it is just a good rule to live life by. Find the things that interest you and pursue them. Even if you have done something a thousand times, still look for ways to make it better. At SlideBelts there is always new things to do and new challenges to undertake. If you see something that interests you, ask questions!
Not all collaboration has to be large scale and game changing. Sometimes the smallest tasks can be made more enjoyable and produce unexpected results through collaboration. This to me is one of the most rewarding parts of any job or task. The opportunity to work with some one else to produce a result that would not have come about through individual pursuits is always exciting to me.
Thanks Team. Have a great rest of the week!!
