Little Board, Big Impact

Maintaining a positive mental attitude can be tough, particularly when the news around us is geared toward only the terrible things going on in the world. It’s often difficult to flush the stories, the worries, the images you’ve seen before you go to bed at night. Sometimes those stresses can carry into the next day, and maybe they walk right into your place of work with you.

At Reeves Young, there is a little board on the second floor of our office that makes a big impact.Every week it holds an inspirational message for our employees. Sometimes it’s something as simple as “DON’T QUIT” or “Believe in yourself and keep going”. They can also be lighthearted and fun -things like “It’s okay if you fall apart sometimes -tacos fall apart and we still love them” or “Whatever you’re doing today, do it with the confidence of a 4-year-old in a BATMAN t-shirt”.

Our team understands the need for lightheartedness and fun when everything else in the world seems heavy and sad. We do what we can to build each other up so that we can all do our jobs better, be better partners, parents, and friends. Sometimes it’s doing the small things -random acts of kindness, quotes on a board, making a difference in our daily spheres of influence -that have the biggest impact.
