“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The recent passing of Neil Armstrong reminded me of his historic first step on the moon when he uttered the now famous words “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”  Landing on the moon was unthinkable just 10 years earlier, so how did this happen?

President Kennedy actually set forth the vision for a moon landing when he set a goal of “landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth” in 1961.  Less than 10 years later, Neil Armstrong achieved this vision with the help of hundreds of thousands of people (it was estimated that over 300,000 people had some role in the mission).  The individuals working on this mission were passionate about achieving this goal and did not want to let the brave astronauts down.

Your vision probably doesn’t include landing on the moon, but answer these questions:  Why do you exist?  What is your purpose, cause or passion?  Do you have a 10 year vision or goal that seems unthinkable?

If you announce your goal, write it down, share it with others who get others excited about your goal and write down a target date, chances are you will accomplishment an unthinkable “giant leap” of your own.

  • Is it time to stop standing by the sidelines watching everyone else succeed?
  • Is it time to increase your income?
  • Is it time to live the life style that you deserve to live?
  • Is it time for you to take a “giant leap” in your level of success?

Change is not easy but is easier to achieve, if you understand how the results of the change will impact yourself and the people you love.

This weekend, those of us in the US celebrate Labor Day where individuals just like you are honored for being part of the contributing workforce of the United States.  Take time to appreciate the impact of what you do every day.  You change people’s lives and help them realize the joy of working in temp, contract or full-time opportunities.

Make a promise this Labor Day weekend to make the most of your amazing career.  Use Neil Armstrong as your inspiration and shoot for the stars when you set your goals.  Don’t be afraid to blaze untraveled paths.  Set your financial thermostat higher and build a legacy for you and the people you love.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I would like to personally thank Ken for all his help in helping me to find a job. On June 1st I was released from my job of 11 years. I was unsure of what my next steps would be. I haven't been through an interview in years and I felt like I was unprepared. Ken took the time to help me step by step. He first gathered all my personal information and work history. He built a resume from all of that information and articulated my accomplishments in a way I never could have. He sent me tips on what to wear, questions to ask, and called after my interviews to see how it went. He gave me support and encouragement when I was at my absolute lowest. I couldn't have asked for a better recruiter! Thank you again Ken! Thanks, Again, KenGeneral Manager, Logan's Road House, Chattanooga TN
