Hustle

HustleIt’s speech season and as Superintendent I was asked to give a few remarks at the Thomas Worthington Senior Scholarship event.  Here is what I said:

“Here in Old Worthington we have a local bakery named Sassafras Bakery (657 High Street).  They sell a cinnamon sugar donut muffin that is the size of a softball and melts in your mouth.  They have warm, gooey frosted cinnamon rolls and iced cookies that are simply unbelievable.  As you can tell I have a sweet tooth and being able to walk to Sassafras from home is not necessarily a good thing.

Recently Sassafras was looking to hire an associate and they posted a picture on Instagram.  At the top of the picture it had a banner that simply said:  

HUSTLE

Underneath the word hustle it said:

Eat

Sleep

Bake Pies

If You Don’t know Ask!

Drink Plenty of Water.

Hustle.

Have a snack.

Get some fresh air.

Clean, clean, clean.

Enjoy your work.

Be kind.

Support your team.

Have fun!

I believe that Sassafras provided good, simple, local advice to live by.  Certainly you could change a few of the words out.  I might change Bake Pies to Work Hard.  And for your future I might change, clean, clean, clean to learn, learn, learn (you will have to continue to learn and grow not matter what your age) but Sassafras has it right and these are simple, yet profound words to live by.

So as you leave the safety of Worthington Schools I’d advise you to do these things:

Hustle

Eat

Sleep

Work Hard

If You Don’t know Ask!

Drink Plenty of Water.

Hustle.

Have a snack.

Get some fresh air.

Learn, learn, learn.

Enjoy your work.

Be kind.

Support your team.

Have fun!

Enjoy your graduation weekend seniors.  On Monday it’s time to Hustle!
