The History of Home Depot

The Home Depot was founded by Bernard Marcus, Arthur Blank, Ron Brill, and Pat Farrah in 1978. A friend of theirs was a banker and helped them secure financing for the venture…and the rest is history. So Home depot is still a relatively young company, its only about 36 years old. So age doesn’t matter with business or ideas I see. Enjoy.

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

Death: The unavoidable outcome

So although I’m generally a very positive person I decided to drop this post to remind myself and anyone who’s willing to listen. So recently some people who I know and had great conversations with have gone from this world. I still have the shared memory of common experiences, but the spirit of that person has left this realm. I send best wishes and condolences to him and his family. I’m not going to post a picture because I don’t want to parade him on this blog as he will truly be remembered by many as a great man. But his death reminded me as it does all of us. Are you doing the things that you want to do. Are you building creating what you want to create? Are you being the person in life that you want to be? OR are you just coasting from crises to crises hoping that one day you can stop and smell the roses. Well I got news for you. Even when you think you reached a position where you can relax, “Bam” a new crises will show up. So crises or no crises, start, if you already started keep going, if you kept going but your waning focus, remember why you started and re-imagine the final outcome. Listening to Les Brown yesterday morning he so eloquently put it, all the dreams, and ideas, poetry, sounds, revelations, words, and hopes, that you have are yours to bring to fruition in the world. No one else has been given those set of ideas, it’s your job, to execute, execute, execute. In the end, win, lose, or fail. You’ll know you have lived the life you wanted to live. One thing that I picked up from another motivational speech is to repeat, I am the kind of person who………..dreams big, saves money, helps kids, protects my family, helps the handicap, writes novels, makes films, creates shows that amaze, plants flowers or trees. The possibilities are endless, with LOVE in my heart Electramorhipism out.
