Trust in Business

Recently dealing with a company that is low on trust and high on promise prompted me to write a post on trust in business. I wrote the post and left it, did not publish it. I was upset at how personal it was, and how it really made me feel betrayed just reading it. I needed time to get past the emotional side of dealing with un-trusting and un-trustful people. Low and behold, I was looking at LinkedIn today, and here it was, exactly what I was looking to say, said better, with less emotion.

Please take a look at Joel Peterson’s (Chairman of Jetblue Airlines) post on trust here. It rings very true to me, how about you ?

If you want to attract, and retain the best talent, and maintain a quality business, make sure Trust is foremost in your character and that of your staff.

Ya, Don’t Screw it up !

When I saw this it really struck a cord on how much dumber George figured we got as we grew up !

I first saw Star Wars when I was 10, and then again at least 5 more times…. needing to help a buddy do papers to afford the movie tickets.

It was the coolest thing I had seen… ever.

In the years to follow, I made stop-motion Star Wars movies, I made live action Star Wars movies, I made the MAD magazine Star Wars “Empire Strikes Out” with live and stop motion. I was a master model maker (especially my 6ft long star destroyer) and a master costume designer and builder (Darth Vader and jawas were the best ones).

Then the worst thing that could happen, did; George introduced CUTE to try and capture a new, younger audience.

I will not even talk about the prequels, they were crap, and besides a great 2 on 1 light saber battle, had absolutely NO interest for me, or millions of others. I especially hate the lack of real dialogue.

This video sums up how I feel as well. Go for it JJ….
