I love the phrase “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and I like to add “Nor was it built by one person”. What am I trying to get at? Teamwork! I am not writing this blog to lecture you on the definition of teamwork, but express (like how I didn’t use the word explain?) the importance of that simple concept.

No, we’re not eastbound and down. More like greasy side up. (lost?)

Jonathan is one of our Broker Sales guys. There are really only two things you need to know about Jonathan:

1. He doesn’t like soccer (indoor soccer included)
2. He has a motor like the little Energizer Bunny, “He Keeps Going and Going and Going.”

Jonathan, being a team player at CablesAndKits, merrily joined our soccer team. On the field, he is like a pinball. Wherever the ball goes you won’t find him far behind.

I’ve never really been that big a fan of change. I like my routine. Wake up, eat. Gym, eat. Work, eat, eat, eat. Home, eat then sleep (That’s not a typo, I like to eat that much). So this is how it went Monday through Friday and has been for the years I have worked here.

So, you can image my dismay when management interrupted one of my feedings to introduce us to something that would radically alter not only the way we conduct business while at work, but introduced us to  whole new way of thinking in general. To use an analogy from the Bible, they didn’t want to feed us a fish but rather teach us to fish.

The sun is tucked beneath the horizon and the vampires are out feeding. Everyone without fangs is dreaming of candy, tall glasses of Coke Cola, and “Snagless Ethernet cables”. Game 3 was scheduled at 11:00 p.m. This is two hours past my bed time! Am I supposed to be able to run around and try to catch up to a soccer ball at this time? I have trouble making it to the bathroom in the middle of night, let alone play soccer.

I think something is catching on around here. After I knocked the cobwebs off the blog people started coming out of the woodwork with blog ideas. I decided that stealing all their ideas and putting my name on them was wrong (and just too time consuming), so I am doing the next best thing; forcing them to write articles for me!

CablesAndKits plays soccer

“If Craig will play, I will play,” says Sajan, our Warehouse Manager. Not a smart thing to say to the CEO of CablesAndKits. Put a stamp on it and mail it, we officially have a soccer team.

Well, we have one post under our belt and “that ain’t bad”. (Think Jack Nicholson in the movie Mars Attacks. After Congress was destroyed he said “I want the people to know that they still have 2 out of 3 branches of the government working for them, and that ain’t bad”. The “that ain’t bad” was in that “Typical Jack Nicholson” sarcastic voice making it all the more funny.)

ANYWHO, after bringing the blog back to life we began to make lots of changes to the look and layout as well. Here are some of the changes made so far:

15 Months since the last post. FIFTEEN MONTHS! That is ludacris! (No, wait. Ludicrous, not Ludacris).

Sigh….. what happened?? Are we all just a bunch of fat faces too busy eating Krispy Kreme donuts to lick off our fingers and post a blooming message? It would seem so wouldn’t it. No….. that’s not it. (But please call first if stopping by so we can hide all the donut boxes).
