A few weeks ago, in the depths of self-isolation, we at Stockton had a “SREA Fridge Challenge.” The goal was to clean out our refrigerators and see who had the oldest expired product. What a revelation! Some of our refrigerators held items that were more than two years old (what can I say- I eat out a lot- or used to, anyway)!
While our Fridge Challenge was a fun diversion from current events, it pointed out the need to measure our resources, put our house in order, keep things fresh, and prepare for the future.
We’ve all had nearly six weeks to re-orient, re-focus, and ponder where we fit in in the grand scheme of life, relationships (personal and business), needs, and wants. The adversity and struggles we’ve faced offer a unique richness of experience, opportunity for reflection, and call to action: Who do we want to be in this world? How do we act toward others? What does the best version of ourselves look like?
At Stockton, we are committed to core beliefs of supporting each other, placing our clients’ objectives above all else, and seeking a positive, rewarding outcome in all of our interactions. As glimmers of hope percolate and the possibility grows of returning to life somewhat as we knew it, now is the time for all of us to take stock of our world, re-commit to the fundamentals of life and business, celebrate our determination to triumph over the COVID scourge, and prepare for the future we want to have.
Wishing you health and success in every way!
We will strive to periodically provide personal viewpoints and observations authored by various Stockton teammates. The preceding was an “Op-Ed” by our own, Jim Paterno. We at Stockton would like to hear your perspectives and experiences in response. Your contribution to the discussion would be appreciated!
