As an employee for the Boeing Company, there are many different people with different cultural backgrounds and their upbringing is even more different. I find it interesting how different a person's work ethic is. From the day I started as an employee for McDonnell Douglas, I knew that the quality of work I did would in some way directly impact a family member of mine as well as myself. I knew that a quality product was the only way to go. Well, a short time ago, a teammate, who is relatively new to the company, approached me about a particular process he had followed while building a specific aircraft detail. My eye immediately spotted something in his process that wasn't right. I pointed out my observation and he looked at me like there was no big deal. I hesitated telling him anything else but couldn't do that in good conscience. I took a moment to tell him of the importance of doing a good job, the first time. We talked about many things throughout our conversation. When we were through discussing the topic I walked away and was grateful for the work ethic I was blessed with. I was grateful to my parents for instilling in me the importance of doing a good job.
Our lives are filled with opportunities to do the right thing, no matter what it is. I was reminded, again, that doing things the right way is the best way!
