"Man In the Glass" is my favorite poem, shared to me by a former teacher.

I am grateful to have met many colleagues along the way throughout my personal life.  It is important to have core values and principles. I list them below.

CORE PRINCIPLES

Quality Time and Meaningful Work

I give quality time and seek it in return. Is this conversation thoughtful or transactional in nature? I prefer discussing professional matters first before companionable topics. It eliminates superficiality and creates meaningful discussions. By going this route, we are not in a rush to get to know each other. It can not be said for the opposite.

Authenticity

Be who you are. Be yourself. Easier said than done. If you feel strongly about an issue, state so.  I think diverse viewpoints are critical to understanding the human condition. Never compromise. One of the most painful things I have done is admit that I am wrong to someone (this was around the collection of money owned). In business, it is a common theme to deny wrongdoing. The parties and I were extremely heated. I realized that I was incorrect. I called and left a voicemail (Not surprising the party didn't pick up). I sent an email and text message explaining how I was incorrect. This created legal exposure to myself but I realized if I was unable to admit wrongdoing then I would be no better than the people that lack values. Everything worked out in the end.

Trustworthiness

I search for honesty, transparency and candidness. It is impossible to continue working with people and not have a chip on your shoulder when you realize someone has misled you, taken advantage of you, or stolen from you. If there is no trust, then there is no relationship dynamic.

Patience & Persistence

I may not have the answers in front of me. I do believe given the amount of time and thought, the answers do appear. There will be lots of agonizing time spent trying to figure the solution, but they do appear with patience and persistence.

Seek Inner Harmony

I can not vastly understate how important personal time is. I will never start conversations with the dreadful "we need to talk" followed by silence. It creates more anxiety than necessary. "Let's talk about X, Y and Z" when you have time is succinct and amicable.

MAN IN THE GLASS

by Peter Dale Wimbrow Sr.

When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.

For it isn’t your father, or mother, or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.

He’s the fellow to please – never mind all the rest
For he’s with you, clear to the end
And you’ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test
If the man in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
