“Good is the enemy of Great” Jim Collins

I love this quote as it reminds me to not settle when things are good. Keep pushing for greatness!

Jim Collins “Good to Great”

I came across an interesting article that is a few years old that does a good job of explaining electrochromic technology or electronically tintable windows. While this technology may be competition for traditional window films in the very long term, this article will educate you as to why this will not be a viable alternative in the near future. Considering the current costs of this technology and the amount of glass currently installed without any tinting, it may be decades before this is viewed as a viable retrofit option. However, it is interesting and is beginning to be spoken about more frequently. For this reason, make sure that you understand the basics layed out in this article so that you can converse intelligently when the topic arises.

Just posting this to encourage you to begin exploring how to promote your company on these platforms. Anyone under 30 likely only knows about a phone book from folk tales and pictures. How many people under 30 do you think get a daily newspaper? Everything is done online and that is only going to continue.

I came across this while doing my regular search for any articles related to window film. This information on how large international companies are looking at window films as a part of their green initiatives is exciting. This all adds credibility to our industry and products and should benefit us all if this trend can be encouraged.

It has been a crazy couple of weeks, but things are going very well right now at work. I have been missing time with the family, but thankfully the next couple of weeks should provide some solid family time. I have been reflecting on a message that I heard in church this past week. It was titled “The Best Question Ever” and the questions is “Is this the wise thing to do?” You can apply that question to nearly every decision that you make in life and it instantly peels away the justifications and excuses and exposes the truth. The question is are you courageous enough to ask the question? If you are, you will be amazed at the clarity that it brings regarding the right choice. Give it a try, if you dare!
