On July 11, 2014, just three years ago, I decided to post a picture of myself while working in my shop. It was captioned, "what do you do for work? I relax and have fun". I decided to add one tag, #RockTheJobsite , even know I knew there was no chance that @ridgidpowertools would even notice my post. Just a few days later, when I thought my hashtag was pointless, I received a comment from @ridgidpowertools who happened to appreciate my support and thanked me for posting. Days later, I received yet one more post saying I won their current contest, from using their current contest hashtag. Since then, my loyalty has gone to them for the one brand to use and trust. I'm so thankful for all the opportunities and friendships that have happened since then. I've met so many inspirational people, both online and in person that play a huge role in my work ethic and passion as a carpenter. It goes to show the power of the hashtag, passion towards your job and most of all, the teamwork and truly amazing community within the trades that are active on Instagram.
Thank you all for helping myself along the way to get there and teach my goals.
I can tag so many people but you know who you are, thank you very much! You've had an amazing impact on a 23 year old who's passion is unstoppable and who's future is brighter then ever. -
This says it all.
Many times, people assume that they are not making a choice if they stay where they are. They want to 'go with the flow' and not do anything that feels too uncomfortable for them.
What they are missing is that they are, in fact, making a choice.
Dead fish 'go with the flow'. That term is something thrown around so frequently nowadays, that some actually say they are 'going with the flow' and associate it with something positive.
IT IS NOT.
It doesn't display determination.
It doesn't display drive.
It doesn't display ambition.
It doesn't display passion.
It doesn't display persistence.
It doesn't display courage.
It doesn't get RESULTS.
Are you going to make a decision to take control of your future, or are you going to CHOOSE to go with the flow?
The starting point of all achievement is desire. —Napoleon Hill

A lot of times us humans feel we need a change of scenery to have a sense of discovery or change. Being a #creative mind I love to look at things from a different perspective or point of view. You'll be surprised at what you will #knowtice when you look at things differently. Apply this to your life, work, and creations this week #GetKnowticed
