I love Spring. I love the way new growth starts in nature and the business climate revs into gear. I love to hear the action in the office and the excitement we exude while pumping out new products.

Spring also means trade shows, product development meetings, product testing, design reviews, and major quality initiatives. If there is one thing that gets my goat, it's a lack of quality focus. When I find myself ignoring the minor details I know it is time to recharge the batteries and place a renewed emphasis on why it is we succeed as a company. Often, it is these little failures that make you realize the triumphs for what they are. Complacency is the evil twin of diligence. Throughout my day I remind myself that our customer, our total quality experience, and the privilege I have to serve our industry in whole are not inherently entitled.

Spring reminds me that every year breeds opportunity for new life. What will I do to do my part?
