The Swiss Ball Creed (for DPR)

This is my swiss ball. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My swiss ball is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My swiss ball, without me, is useless. Without my swiss ball, I am useless. I must sit straight on my swiss ball. I must sit straighter than my co-worker who is trying to outwork me. I must outwork him before he outworks me. I will…

My swiss ball and myself know that what counts in this marketplace is not the faxes we send, the noise of our printers, nor the typing we do. We know that it is the buildings we build that count. We will build…

My swiss ball is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its valves and its ridges. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my swiss ball clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…

Before God, I swear this creed. My swiss ball and myself are the defenders of my company. We are the masters of our competitors. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is DPR’s and there is no economic slowdown, but construction!
