PEO Management: A Change for the Better

by Matthew LisiOctober 27, 2016 8:00 AM

You’ve probably heard the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

I remember in my youth that my grandfather swore by this philosophy. He was very particular when it came to what he owned and how to maintain it, as he lived through the depression and he was cheap! Fast forward a few years to where my grandfather trusted me to mow his lawn. Now by trust I mean he sat in his lawn chair, watched, and critiqued each and every pass I made. Like I said, he was particular.

That Christmas my family got my grandfather a new lawnmower and the first thing he said was, “That manual one still works fine. Matthew was able to mow all summer without any issues.” Now there were issues: the mower was ancient, rusted, and dull. All signs pointed to the fact that a change was necessary BUT would gramps be open to it?

The next summer I was not asked once to come mow his lawn. My grandfather religiously mowed it every week because, as he stated, “This thing is a gem! It’s like I’m not even putting forth effort and my lawn looks the best I’ve ever seen it!”
