Pickle Wisdom for the new year

One December day when we were visiting Pittsburgh, PA it was rainy and icy, not at all conducive (or safe) for taking long exploration walks around town.

Instead, we visited the Pittsburgh Regional History Museum and spent a delightful afternoon there.

This sign struck my fancy, and seems fitting to keep top of mind this first day of 2017. In fact, we'll be adding this quote to our Kendall Team Charter.

"No Task Too Little, " Henry John Heinz

Happy New Year!

Pittsburgh is, indeed delightful, Patricia Kennedy . Any city with hills, water, park lands and neighborhoods gets my vote -- and if they have a brew pub like Penn Brewery it's even better.

"No task is too little to be done in the best way" should help us stay focused and moving forward with the little, mundane parts of our jobs. I really like this one -- and really like Pittsburgh, too.

Happy New Year, Paul!

Pickle wisdom is worth remembering. There were so many great entrepreneurs like Heinz that are now household names and I don't believe most people know their history. I really appreciate learning more about this company from you.

Young 25-year-old Henry was wise beyond his years and he had a great vision. I am thankful to you Lottie for bringing this information to me today. Have a wonderful day!

Hello Patricia Feager - I agree; H.J. Heinz was wise -- industrious too, starting his business at the tender age of 11!

Pittsburgh would be a great get-away for you, Rebecca Gaujot, the Go To Realtor® - it's a delightful city, and this museum is really worthwhile. When you go, be sure to take a ride up one of the remaining inclines.

I agree with that saying. No task is too small to do right! Amen to that. 

I also enjoyed reading a big of the history on the sign. Mike and I just finished watching the Harley-Davidson story. It was very good. I like history.

Hi Debbie Laity - if you find yourselves in Pittsburgh sometime, you'd really enjoy the museum of regional history. Mr. Rogers' hails from there; so does Andy Warhol and many other notables. Its history as a steel town that reinvented itself as a hub of high tech, education and medical advances.
