Creating Something…Better!

By Mark Bowser

“In this volatile business of ours, we can ill afford to rest on our laurels, even to pause in retrospect. Times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our aim constantly focused on the future.”  Walt Disney

            What ever happened to the horse and buggy?  I like the horse and buggy.  Why can’t you find a good ole fashioned horse drawn carriage at your local Ford dealership?  I will tell you why.  Because Henry Ford had vision.  He saw what the future had in store and grabbed it with both hands.  He didn’t invent the car…he made it better.

Walt Disney did the same thing.  He didn’t invent the animated cartoon.  He made it better.  Walt Disney didn’t invent the amusement park.  He made it better.  Walt Disney didn’t invent customer service…he made it better.  In fact, Walt Disney lived this principle so fervently that he and the company that shares his name have become the guiding light of innovation, creativity, and service.

How about you?  Where are you making your mark? You and I don’t have to be another Thomas Edison and invent something out of nothing. We can take something and make it better.  A new creation out of the old. When we do this, we not only make our dreams come true…we birth in others the seeds of their dreams too.  Something to ponder today…something to act on tomorrow!
