The other night I was with my older sister enjoying a lovely Friday night. Want to know what we were doing? Working, working, and more working – on a Friday night no less! Sometimes working on a Friday night is just part of the deal no matter how hard it may be. Our 24 hour courier Dallas team certainly knows about always being on call. Our Dallas route courier team knows about working hard too. Boy, we’ve got some hard working people on our team!
Ever heard the quote: “we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us?” I think it’s a pretty powerful quote about learning from the past. Many times, when I am down, tired or unmotivated, I look to those who have gone before me. I look to what they say, how they inspire. Our 24 hour delivery Dallas team looks to inspiring people as well. We all should.
For the past two weeks, everyone in our office has been talking about Thanksgiving. People are getting really excited about the day when we all get together with family and friends to EAT! When each of our couriers stop by the home office on their way to make another Dallas same day delivery, they all say the same thing: they can’t wait for Thanksgiving.
Since time is so important to us and each Dallas delivery route we complete, the history of time is something we know about. Courier services have essentially been around for ages, and they have all operated based on time. In Rome, there were ‘running footmen’ who carried messages for the wealthy people – politicians, land owners, etc. In colonial America, men on horseback carried information from town to town – which was critical in the Revolutionary War.
Every day, I come into our office, get a cup of piping hot coffee, start up my computer, meet with my boss to set up our priority list and then get started for the day.
