Gettin’ Ziggy With It

Zig ZiglarWith a full month of the New Year behind us, I’m proud to say the entire Matchmaker Logistics team has succeeded in implementing some new habits in 2016:

For years, we have started every work day with a virtual team huddle. Our entire team has a 5-10 minute check-in call via video conference to discuss our goals and top priorities for the day.

This year, we decided to add one more quick “minute” to our daily routine – The Motivational Minute. Legendary author, salesman, and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said: “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

We realized that taking just a few seconds (it rarely take a full minute) to share a quote, meme or motivational message sets the tone for our entire day. Carrier Sales Rep Kendra Rhodes has become our official curator for each morning’s motivational energy boost. I’m really proud of the initiative she has taken to lead our team and influence its daily culture.

Here is Kendra’s favorite ” Motivational Minute” thus far, followed by a few more nominations from our team, and the final word from Zig himself:
