Say what you will do & do what you say, follow through. Practice what you preach. Strive for perfection, but understand it is not obtainable.
Are you a pessimist, optimist or realist and why do you think it helps you make the decisions you make?
I have been all three throughout my life. I am currently a realist, without a doubt. When you can clearly see the finish line along with the obstacles that will try to stop you from getting to it successfully & in a timely manner, decision making becomes straight forward. It is simply common sense based on life experiences.
Which one of the 4 Core Values do you identify with the most and why?
Knowledge. You can be knowledgeable in many aspects but no one person knows it all. Though the pursuit of knowledge, I have found the rest just happens. You learn to respect others, you learn what is truly important in life and you become willing to spread that knowledge to others who are also seeking it.
What is something that your co-workers would be surprised to learn about you?
I met my wife when we were in 7th grade and have been together ever since. I have built & raced cars as a hobby for the better part of my life.
