Happy Monday All!
The new schedule is now in effect, what what! Stay vigilant and flexible as we transition into this new structure. This "re-working" of our work day reflects one of the key tenets of our company, which is honor. An "honor system" such as ours relies on the integrity of its participants to function, rather than using external incentives and controls. This runs counter to traditional wisdom in business, which says that people are entirely self-interested agents and will only act in ways that bring them personal gain. To be frank, I personally would not trust the majority of people with the system we now have in place. But, to be sure, I respect the resolve that drives our system.
Resolve is the "will" in the phrase, "if there's a will, there's a way." If the world slaps you down and says "No way," You say, "Yeah way." And you keep saying it, again and again, until the world throws up its hands and goes, "FINE! BE THAT WAY!" This is relevant to our situation because faith is an act of will, not of feeling. It's applying resolve to trust in someone else, despite the evidence that trust is dangerous. By trusting in our honor, SlideBelts is much more susceptible to the risk of harm if we behave in selfish ways. However, I mean it when I say:
I have faith in you! ^_^
