Today I want to talk about determination. We are so very busy at work that it is crazy. First, to give you a little rundown of the operation, I manage a production shop that produces insulation for commercial businesses. Basically we make giant foam blocks of insulation. We are one of the few companies in the world that produces this type of insulation.
Anyway back to the morale of the day. So my Father in Law has a friend who helps him out on occasion with odd jobs. We are really slammed at work so he called this guy to ask him if he could come help us out. Now I had seen this guy once before when I first started working at the shop but never really talked to him.
So he shows up today and get this, his name is Ozzie Osbourne. Now that alone is funny but all jokes aside, this guy worked hard. He had all these lumps on his face, neck, and arms and he told me he was helping a bee/pest remover the day before and was stung by Africanized bees. Also in the mix, they had to remove poison ivy to get to the bee hive. Now either this guy is a good liar or one hell of a worker.
Our shop is outside, no A/C, and all manual labor. Now this is no problem for a young stud like me...LOL but I asked how old Mr. Ozzie was and he said he will be turning 72 next month. LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN. 72!!!! Now I don't know what has this guy so determined in life but we can all take a lesson.
I am determined to be a great husband, a great father, and all around a good person! We should think about what inspires us and remember to keep those goals in mind! Every now and then we may get off track a little, but don't loose sight of what is most important to you! Take a lesson from Ozzie Osbourne! If he can work in 105 degree heat at 72, we can all push a little harder to accomplish our goals!
Hope all is well!!
