I trust everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday by relaxing, enjoying the great weather and showing appreciation for your mother. For the women in the firm that are mothers I trust your children pampered you and showed the appreciation you deserve.
For this week, I’d like to continue expanding upon the ten traits described in the Withum Way, all of which define our culture and the behaviors which best exemplify our people. Today we will cover our final attribute:
10. LIVE LIFE PASSIONATELY. If you don’t love what you are doing, then why bother doing it? Be zealous in your pursuit of living.
At some time in your life, you’ll feel the magnetic attraction to something you’re meant to do. Whether a sports team, a hobby, the mission of a charity or being wholeheartedly dedicated to your family, having ‘passion’ for something empowers us to live and communicate with unbridled enthusiasm. Passion enables us to overcome obstacles and to see the world as a place of infinite potential.
I witness quite a bit of passion within our Firm. Whether it is in your hobbies like skiing, motorcycle riding, traveling, taking dance lessons, coaching little league or being involved with the PTO. I also see how your offices or cubicles are awash with photos of your kids or the colors and logos of your favorite sports team. And, I see it in the relationships you have with your clients, genuinely caring about them, showing an interest in them, and serving them as a true partner in the success of their business. Our Firm is full of incredible people who demonstrate an enthusiastic attitude in everything they do, in and out of the office. It’s a reflection of the passion you have for life as a whole. You are LIVING life, and not just existing. Kudos to you!
