Nelson Mandela: Rise Above

Nelson Mandela, the revered civil rights leader, freedom-fighter and anti-apartheid icon who was detained 27 years in prison, led South Africa to democracy and became its first black president, died yesterday at home at the age of 95.

There is much we can all learn from the words and wisdom of Nelson Mandela. The image quote below is my personal favorite as it directly applies to Pinnacle Performance and success in general.

Nelson Mandela Rise Above

Here are more select quotes on a variety of topics from Nelson Mandela By Himself: The Authorised Book of Quotations

I hope you find inspiration from these as we honor a man who was the true pinnacle of justice and peace.


May he rest in peace.

Honoring All Who Served and All Who Serve Them!


On this Veterans Day, Americans across the nation are honoring the sacrifice and service of the armed forces.

President Barack Obama has stated that the country’s obligations to those who have served “endure long after the battle ends.”

Sadly, for far too many veterans this sentiment has not materialized into tangible benefits as an alarming number of veterans are struggling to make ends meet now that their service to protect and serve our country has ended.

A Chicago-based brewery is on a mission to change that.

In this Chicago Brewer Plans To Hire Only Military Veterans article by CBS News, Veteran Beer Company President Paul Jenkins said, “rather than sit around and let others solve the problem for us, why not start our own company and figure out how to employ as many veterans as quickly as possible. So the concept behind the Veteran Beer Company is that we will produce the finest beer in America — brewed by, the recipes written by, bottled by, sold by veterans. Everybody in the organization is to be a veteran”.

Paul and the entire team at Veteran Beer Company should be applauded for their servant leadership and pro-active efforts to help American Veterans, none more so than on this Veteran’s Day.

So Hats Off, Thumbs Up & Cheers To All American Veterans and all the people, organizations and companies that have made it their business to serve them!




Work Break

With Summer upon us, many employees have a hard time focusing on their jobs and find themselves on an extended mental (if not physical) break. Below is a witty sign a crafty company posted to remind their employees of their mission. Would this be a suitable addition to your workplace?

Have a Happy 4th of July break (tomorrow)
