Monday’s may not be your favorite day, but we’re making them a bit more fun this morning with a look inside the lives of some of our managers and how their departments succeed here at Duluth Pack. A look from the inside of a company seems interesting, almost mysterious, and actually really fun. Today, we are sitting down with our Assistant Retail Store Manager, Elizabeth, or also known as our energizer bunny. Elizabeth is the type of person that no matter what the situation, she continuously looks to the light and positive side of everything. She is the person our team relies on to keep the energy flowing and our customers expecting the best of the best customer service they deserve. You know the type of person that just attracts happiness and people to want to be around them? That’s her. Without a further ado, here is Elizabeth!
Start your morning:
With a run, walk, or hike! Gotta get the blood flowing!
I’m very competitive so I set goals. Be they long or short term, I need those benchmarks to reach for. I always have to stay in motion or my energy dies.
Go horseback riding! Time at the barn is always time well spent and good for the body and mind. Time to exercise, de-stress, and reflect.
By trying new things. Routine is great, but for me it isn’t enough. I always find attainable ways of doing more, being faster, learning new skills, etc. If you have the energy to do something well you can always do it better.
Lots and lots of energy, and by keeping the humor alive. No matter how crumby my day is, I always try to be positive, witty, and energetic. I also lay on the sarcasm… hard.
Find personal balance:
By managing my “me time” schedule to be just as important as my work schedule. I would never put off a work appointment, so why would I put off my time doing the things I love? They are the reason that I am even ABLE to be energetic and happy at work.
Ha! I don’t. I let it pile up until there’s a break in the action, then I tackle it.
End your day:
Eating good food with my husband and snuggling with the dogs!
Thank you to Elizabeth for sharing a snippet of her day and what keeps her motivated to make each day count. We’re curious. What gets you going and seizing the day?
