Never Underestimate the Power of Attitude

In the world of business, one commonly underestimated trait is attitude. It can be often assumed that one must be cold, discerning, abrasive and cut-throat to succeed, and yes, some businesses thrive on that archetype, however, a great attitude should not be overlooked. Being a jerk will not always work, and it will not win you admirers. Even if you do your job well, if you don’t contribute to the overall positive growth of a company on a personal level, you may find yourself shut out in time as a result.

Skills are necessary to every job, but if an employee cannot be on an equal level of footing with their coworkers, it is clear they are not the ideal cultural fit for the company. While skills may lead to making great money, a bad attitude won’t contribute to a high level of professional success for the company as a whole; how much of a personal asset are you if your personality is difficult and people begin to refuse to work with you?

At American Van Lines, we hire on personality as much as on skill. Our employees are part of our culture, and they are essential to our every aspect of success. In our line of work, where we are highly involved in helping people with major life transitions, it takes a high level of customer service to execute moves ensuring satisfaction. We never underestimate the importance of individual positivity, and its overall impact on the group environment. We hire on personality; no matter how good you are at what you do, you have to be a solid person as well.

So, the bottom line here is have a great attitude. Don’t think being nasty is what a company expects of you all the time; in most industries, it won’t get you far. Being a positive influence on those around will do much more for you, get you farther ahead, and have you feeling good about being a decent human at the end of the day. Skills are important; hone them, excel, and do your best to get to the top of your field, however aim for a position within a company where your personality will not only fit the culture, but will also enable you to thrive.

Monday Goal Planning

Monday is crucial to the rest of your week, and what you do on that first day, that first opportunity of the week can make or break you for the rest of the week. In an effort to keep things in gear and strategize as effectively as possible, here are my tips for goal planning. No excuses, no distractions. Set yourself up for getting things done, and you’ll see how it all happens correctly.

Make the Time
How many times do you hear people using the excuse: not enough time? There is never enough time if you fall back on such an excuse. So make the time. Start small. Dedicate 15 minute periods to clearing your head when you need breaks to reset. Focus on what needs to get accomplished. Spend an hour (minimum) each Friday before leaving work to start mapping out the goals for Monday, continue on Sunday night (briefly) if you’d like to add anything.

Look at Long Term and Short Term Goals
Breathe deeply, examine where you’re at, where you’re going, and where you want to be. It’s important to visualize the big picture, because if you focus only on the miniscule details that are occurring at that moment, you can easily lose sight of the real reasons you’re forging ahead. Connect where you’re at with where you’re headed. Ask yourself: where do you want to be in 3 years? In 10 years? What’s your legacy?

Give Yourself a Pat on the Back
If you don’t appreciate the work you’ve done, how can you expect anyone else to? This is what will push you, being able to see the short term accomplishments will add up to the bigger, long term ones getting knocked out as well. You need to acknowledge a job well done on your own behalf, because it’s important to remind yourself that everything you’re working for, essentially benefits your own life. If it doesn’t, you need to check your goals! In the meantime, whatever great things you accomplished last week, whether they were big or small, take a few minutes to reflect, maybe write them down, and just appreciate how much you have done.

Schedule Every. Single. Thing.
You just have to. You’re going to forget, you’re going to get distracted, things will get lost in the shuffle; everyday, make a running schedule, not just a to-do list. This will help you plot out your time realistically, so that you can plan tasks accordingly to what can get done in what type of time frame. Don’t schedule extremely important tasks in excess; 1-3 of them is the maximum most people can handle in a day. Plan these schedules into your phone’s calendar, set notifications, and stick to it. Once you’ve got your brain trained for it, you should be ready for action.

When it comes to packing up your home when it’s time to move, do you get excited? Is it something you relish in doing? Can’t wait for the next time you have to go through every last minute detail in your home and bundle bubble wrap around every single glass, and put your entire lifetime’s worth of possessions into boxes to haul off to another location? Yeah, so does everyone.


Sarcasm aside, packing and staying on top of every room, and every item you own is a grueling task, and no one looks forward to it. It’s tedious, time-consuming, frustrating, and complicated. Along with everything else that needs to get done in order to move, packing is among the most annoying, yet essential. So, that’s where we come in. We are experts, and if you’d like, we can handle all of the packing for you. Seriously; why not leave the packing to your movers? Here’s a look at all the reasons we’ll have it under control easily.

Experience: It counts for a whole lot, and while you may be overwhelmed with the move, professional movers have the know-how and experience to get the whole house packed properly and efficiently.
Insurance: Of course, it all depends on the circumstances surrounding your individual move, however many moving insurance companies will not cover boxes you pack yourself for the sake of liabilities. There is also always the possibility of damaging your goods by unintentionally packing your items incorrectly, so here’s another great reason to let someone else handle it.
Security: Trusting experts to manage all of your items, including delicate and fragile pieces can be a lifesaver because it saves you the stress of making sure they are properly protected. While we cannot vouch for the services of others, at AVL, our movers are highly trained, highly experienced individuals who are able to pack all varieties of delicate items securely. Whether it’s expensive gaming equipment, fragile china or ceramics, keepsakes, large breakables, or anything else you have in your home of which you are unsure about risking the loss on, these things are much better in the hands of pros who know exactly how to pack them to secure against damage in a moving environment.
So, why take unnecessary risk and stress yourself over the most difficult task if you have a support team ready to go, and ready to handle the most difficult aspects of moving for you? Let the experts do the packing. Moving is hard; American Van Lines is here to help make it easy!
