Gazing Into 2020

What an amazing year it has been! Collectively, we have been handed many new and exciting challenges. These challenges are the building blocks that will transform and propel our organization for years to come. New challenges always lead to some anxiety, but we have persevered and prepared to embrace the new Essity HMS US.

Spock

Whenever I see or hear the word “energize”, my mind immediately reverts to my college days and I start singing the Information Society song, What’s on your Mind (https://youtu.be/ijAYN9zVnwg). The synthesized beats of the 80’s, along with phrases by Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy), set my heart in motion and invigorates my spirit.

Preparing for the Future

While being motivated by a word or a song is fantastic, you need to have the Eye of the Tiger (https://youtu.be/27F46WPVJBs) to sustain your motivation…if you want to succeed. Paul “Bear” Bryant once said, It’s not the will to win that matters…everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters”. Whether it’s in sports or in our professional lives, we all want to win. But, are you willing to put in the hard work to prepare to win?

In-Game Adjustments

Now is the time to make some in-game adjustments to prepare yourself to win moving forward. Be true to who you are. If you don’t have the will to prepare to succeed in your current role, be honest with yourself and find your true passion. Once you find your passion, the will to prepare for success will be second nature, and the results will show it.

Welcome to the journey of Joe, a short introduction to my life.  You better buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy road! Let me begin with this thought:  While education and careers define what we do, it’s ultimately family and relationships that define who we are. What I’ve Done First off, my educational journey […]

Like many people today, I have had many forks in the road of my professional and educational journeys. I have two B.S. degrees, one in Industrial Safety Management and the other in eBusiness. I also have an MBA in Management and am currently studying to be a deacon in the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh. Along the way, I was a Food Service Director, trained as an Air Traffic Controller, was a volunteer firefighter/EMT for about ten years, and eventually found my home in healthcare business development with Essity. Last, but not least, my bride and I have been married for a little over eight years. We met playing softball (I played shortstop and she played second) and were known as the best double-play combination in the CAC.
