April Rhodes, CEO Spectrum Healthcare, Employee of the Year Announcement:

“I want to share with you a quote I heard recently about NASA: there was a guy touring NASA and he came across someone who was changing light bulbs and putting things away. And the guy stopped and asked this employee, who obviously worked for NASA, “What do you do here?”

And the employee paused, lightbulb in hand, and said, “We’re putting a man on the moon here.”

That story struck me because that is want all of you to feel like; no matter what your role or what you do here at Spectrum, I want you to feel you’re making a difference in people’s lives. Whoever you are; whatever you do.

And this year’s Employee of the Year embodies that every single day. I’ve never seen him without a smile on his face; I’ve never seen him unwilling to help; he tells me almost every single day how happy he is to work at Spectrum. In fact, just talking about it gets me a little emotional.

Congratulations John Chaddock! You are Spectrum Healthcare’s 2017 Employee of the Year!”

The One Thing You Can Always Change

By | Motivation | No Comments

There’s an old joke that says, “Everybody complains about the weather but nobody does a thing about it.”

It’s meant to point out the obvious fact that there are many things in Life over which we have no control.

Zero. Zip. Nada.

We have no control over our height, or the color of our eyes.

We have no control over the time the sun rises or sets.

We have no control over traffic.

We have no control over the person who tries to sneak 15 items into the “10 items or less” line.

And, like the weather, complaining about these things is a waste of energy because we simply can’t change them.

But there is one thing about all these things that we CAN change…our attitude toward them.

Unlike the weather and the traffic and the person in the “express check-out,” we have control over our attitude. We can change it, make it better. We have that choice each and every day. No one can do it for us and no one can take a positive attitude away from us without our consent.

We control it.

So, take a deep breath when Life hands you a situation completely out of your hands. Don’t try to change IT…change YOU instead.

(And please, count those items BEFORE you get into the “10 items or less” line. Those of us behind you with only two items thank you.)
