Baseball and Philosophy Part 3

Cal Ripken Jr.’s Baseball Hall of Fame induction speech was not only inspiring, but also relevant to the workplace. Cal’s speech discussed commitment, preparation, teamwork, personal development and pride. Of course, we all remember when Cal broke Lou Gehrig’s record of 2,130 consecutive games played (usually known as "The Streak") by playing three more years and reaching 2,632 consecutive games - virtually 15 straight years of starting every game. Cal stated, "Some fans have looked at ‘The Streak’ as a special accomplishment, but I always looked at it as just showing up for work every day. I see thousands of people who do the same. You all may not have received the accolades I have, but I’d like to take the time out to salute you for showing up, working hard and making the world a better place." (Source)

Manufacturing Pre-fab

Manufacturing pre-fab could be the bright spot in an otherwise dismal industry- having gone through a bubble ten years ago and at a building cost of 10 to 35 percent less than site-built construction- since 2005, single family home sales have fallen 76%, and pre-fab by 57%.
