The measure -Vince Lombardi

My Pondering

I don’t think is so much a measure of ‘who we are’ but ‘what we accomplish’. For me, it’s more important as to ‘whose I am’.

We are all dealt a different quantity and quality of cards to play the game of life. The great thing is we can improve our hand but we are measured by how we play it. How big and often we win, yes. And also how and why we play.

This is one sense of winning but not the only because there are many ways to win as there are many different definitions of success.

Habakuk 3 – a modern Christian businessman’s reflective pondering

My Pondering

I have been there and done that! Definitely been low on funds and high on responsibility.

Thankfully, I am higher up on the hill but far from the mountain top.

Has a small but mighty businessman, I have come to trust God, in His providence and guidance. Not that life will always be ‘roses and calorie lollipops’ but that God is with and for me. James 4:8 speaks to my, to your, to our responsibility:

Draw near to God
and He will draw near to you.

James 4:8

James also give us businessmen another valuable nugget of wisdom in that we shouldn’t say, “We will do this or that but we will if the LORD wills.” Yes, we must initiate – better yet: respond to God’s opportunity revealed, give it our very best and trust the results to His providence. Proverbs speak often to this. Paul in Romans said is so well in Romans 8:28. If you yet to have that one memorized, internalized and tattooed upon your heart, there is no time like the present.

Look it up and keep it up!

Value Matrix

My Pondering

PRICE (Investment)

Is what things cost, their price. Generally, the better the Quality the higher the price.

QUALITY (Features and Benefits)

Is the reliability, features and performance of a product or service. Generally, the higher the price the better Quality.

SPEED (Time)

Is the time element it takes to complete a task or job. Generally, the more custom and further away, the higher the price. Packages and basic work can reduce the time, thus the price. We never sacrifice safety or a products core essence however features, form and delivery speed can be alter the time it takes.

Most people want the absolute best value including:

  • Lowest price
  • Fastest speed
  • Best Quality

As a service company, we certainly strive to hit the center of the mark delivering the absolute best value every day, every client. It is most certainly a challenge and some say impossible yet that is no excuse not to try our very best.

To increase the reliability of delivering what our clients expect, we recommend they pick their priorities. We strive to deliver all three but promise to deliver the top two (90% plus) and vow and guarantee to always deliver the primary (100%).

CUSTOM

Custom is the work we do the most of. It takes the most skill and the longest time, so it’s the most expensive and comprehensive.

PACKAGE

Packages are bundles which help reduce cost due their more limited, simpler installation and less ‘bells and whistles’.

BASIC

Are simple projects with limited scopes.
