Keys To the Shop: A Message of Trust

Keys to The Shop

Do you remember what it’s like when you recieved your first set of car keys?  I remember the feeling of freedom rush over me.

What do I remember more?  When I received a key to the Liquor Store I worked at in high school.

The feelings were borderline euphoric.

  • TRUST:  Somebody (the owner) thought I was responsible enough to have it.  And use it, to open or close the shop.

  • I MATTER:  Not everyone had them, you had to be chosen.

“I got keys to the shop!”  

Some people flashed cool key chains on their car ring.  I flashed a gold commercial key to a liquor store.

This week something simple was done at my company.  Multiple office keys were made.  Everyone that works in the office is now trusted to have a key, not just the owners and a selected one or 2 people.

My only regret is that it happened on day #60 instead of day #1 of owning LM Foods.

Regrets for high action people are usually related to not moving fast enough…..  

Simple and basic.  Old School Fundamentals usually are.
