Thanks again to David Friedman for sharing such an important fundamental:
MAKE QUALITY A PERSONAL GOAL. Take pride in everything you touch and everything you do. Ask yourself, “Is this my best work?”
Jim S: Quality is one of the important tools we have when helping to support our dealers
Mike D: Making quality a personal goal I believe it is a trait that we should all generate from how we present ourselves to include our work and our finished project. Bring quality to our personal relationships and work just the same as our business
Alex B: Seeking to do a quality job is, of course, a worthwhile endeavor, but sometimes seeking perfection can translate to “Paralysis”.
Jim S: Too many times u see a lot of sales people with a lot of quantity in their presentations but little quality. Quantity is great, but quality comes from listening to the customer’s needs.
Ryan B: Quality means everything to me. Even in a text message, I make sure everything is spelled and punctuated correctly. In boot camp for the Navy, we were introduced to the saying “Attention to Detail”, which I think goes along with quality. I didn’t understand why we needed to fold our clothes a certain way, or why we needed to make our bunks a certain way or why the toilet paper had to be on the roll a certain way until I started flying and loading weapons. With the lack of attention to detail, this could have put my crew in grave danger or could have meant weapons not arming or arming too soon, still putting us in danger. It has been a staple in my DNA ever since and shows up all the time whether it was in engine building, diagnosing electrical issues or just filling out paperwork. You might say quality is a big deal to me.
Everything you touch or do has your signature. This itself should bring out your best.
Reading responses like those above are quite humbling to me. It is encouraging that we have individuals with this much depth to them. A special thanks to our team for their participation. We believe it is a privilege to learn something new each day. For more information, contact OCP here.
