I promise to get better

To All it Concerns -

I have not been myself for the last three months.

Fatigue, stress, health issues, I can blame any number of things, but I have to blame myself.

The Dave the world knows is:

Unrelenting

Dedicated

Loyal

Optimistic to a fault

Loving

Fun

I haven’t been doing a very good job of letting any of these characteristics shine through.

I feel like I have been exceedingly:

Selfish

Fearful

Introverted

Lazy

…as of late.

This all ends today. I have found myself again, and feel ready to get back to being that man. A man my employees and partners can count on, and can laugh with. A husband my wife can put her trust in, and a father my kids love to see walk through the door.

Sincerely,

Dave

  1. Awesome,Dave. The return of the tiger! And for the record, I haven’t seen too many bosses address his employees with such humility and sincerity. Way to go!

  2. You truly are someone I look up to, Dave. You’re and incredible leader. I always admire the way you lead by example and the fact that you hold yourself accountable and take action. Things I’ve seen other CEO’s not even want to touch upon.

  3. For the record, you haven’t been any of these negative things! I’m always honest with you, and I’m still being honest. Some people and circumstances may make you feel that way, but it’s not accurate. The only thing that has been awful and needs to change is your self esteem.

  4. I’m blown away by your humanity and humility, Dave. Everyone has aspects of themselves that they can improve, and that’s something that should never change. There’s always room for improvement, but give yourself some credit, man. I’m just the new girl, and I’ve seen you work your tail off to make this company better.

    I’m inspired by your post. Keep on keepin on :)

  5. I agree with Samantha, the only thing you need to change is how you view/think about yourself. If you’ve considered yourself lazy, selfish and fearful over the last 3 months, then I think you may need to be schooled on what those words mean.!
