"Building something in a quality manner is something you have to do at a certain pace, which I don’t think many people our age understand: how long it actually takes to do something (or, on the other hand, how long it actually takes to appreciate something). We have to remind ourselves every day to slow down." #3Sixteen #Arrowhead

Plaster this on every cube, and every office, and every "common area", and every other corporate gathering area.
Note: Print extra copies for when initial posted copy gets removed due to uncomfortable silence induced after reading.
That's the simple test of a bureaucracy that has lost its way. If your employees can't answer how something they do helps the customer or the company, you've insulated your people from their jobs. "It's our policy," is not an...

Do you want our apathy?

Don't respond to emails.
Be defensive when I offer a suggestion when we meet.
Dumb down the products so they appeal to the lowest common denominator.
Treat me like I don't matter more than anyone else.
Put me on hold.
Don't miss me if I'm gone.
Maximize profit, not impact.
If you want me to be an apathetic bystander, it's not that difficult to accomplish.
Whatever.

Spot on, by #SethGodin .

Rarely does a brand come along that hits every single note perfectly. The guys behind Noble denim recently launched an exciting new venture called Victor, which goes way beyond just making clothes. What Victor is doing is looking to help save a factory, revitalize a town, and if successful, bring back American garment manufacturing in the Southeast. It’s more than just a noble (punny, I know) undertaking, it’s also simply great product.

- +Victor Athletics -
If you don't know about them yet, learn about them.. immediately.
Weeks from now you'll wish you acted sooner, and months from now you'll be reading all about them, seeing them in pop-up's, and noticing that _____ celebrity or stylist is rocking something stylish by them.
(You'll also save a ton of coin if you support them.)

Other than great cuts, quality materials, and legit craftsmanship, my favorite part is that they're focusing on small-town USA manufacturing, bringing it local, but more-so going even farther by giving 5% of their after-tax profit back to the factory to continue to invest in their workers and combat the impact of outsourcing.

Give, and it will be given to you.
How cool is that?

Spread the word, and go be cool before the rest of the cool kids.

If you don’t make a conscious choice for rest, you will find yourself always filling your time by ticking off items instead of giving yourself space to be in the moment—thinking, doodling, reading, musing, or doing whatever fills you creatively. http://99u.com/articles/35599/the-lost-art-of-free-time (link c/o +Hiut Denim Co's Scrapbook Chronicles)
After finishing a big project, you’ll be tempted to ride the momentum to the next big thing. But first, take a breather.
