Perfectly in Tulsa since 1998 we are complete carpet, so give us a call today at (918) 494-7093 or visit us on the web at complete carpet, tulsa.com and get on your way to join your home again. So we originally started as a installation company and actually who was more of a fortuitous event circumstances than it was specific guidance. Now my father was in a similar industry, so he did most of the apartment work and so I grew up around the carpet industry as a manager for a, then he had his own business and multiple berries, different things. And so I, for fun money or for buy a bike or I needed more money to buy a motorcycle or a little more of a dirt bike, a little different things that you would want to do as a kid.

When I’d want to make the money or want to have the money, my dad would have me make the money. I said that I will provide for you everything that you need, the needs of your life, food, shelter, water. But your wants, you’re going to have to go out there and you can get those yourself because the world doesn’t give you your wants. Even if you’re on government assistance, it’s not going to give you your water. It’s only going to give you your needs. So you need to start right now saying, okay, I need to figure out how I can take care of my needs. Um, and in my case, my family took care of that for me as a young child. Then I can start to focus on my wants. And as you go out into the world by yourself, then you need to do both. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa is in our fiber.
Speaker 1: (01:41)
We need to pull double duty. And we need to take care of both your needs and your wants. And I’ve done the same with my children. Anytime they want to get something. My son wants a new video game. Adella Boston that sounded like that’s a fit you want. It’s not something you need but something that you would want to have. So, uh, you can work with me on next Saturday. And uh, let’s see, that’s a pretty expensive video game. It might take you two Saturdays to set up the money for that and then all of a sudden he starts weighing the value of that item that he wants versus the amount of time that it will take him to get it. And then, you know, you’ll quickly see a diminishing returns. Is, is this really worth what I’m wanting to try to accomplish or get from it or is this something that, um, you know what, compared to the amount of, uh, work that is required to receive that, um, I may change my mind about what I want.

Speaker 1: (02:23)
You just give me anything. I’ll just take it. This is also why, if you look at a lot of kids when they’re little, both the parents and the grandparents giving them toys and then there’s a huge stack of toys in the bedroom that never gets touched to play with. And it’s because they may have wanted it, but they didn’t have to earn it. So they didn’t, there was no pain. They just took a whole bunch of stuff and they’re like, eh know I didn’t have, I don’t have any equity in this particular thing. So if it’s fun, I’ll play with it. When I get bored, I just won’t play with it anymore. Whereas if you worked hard to receive stuff, get something, then it has a lot sweeter taste. It’s a lot more, um, uh, rewarding to be able to have gotten that a carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa is in our fiber.

And so my dad is still, to me, the difference between a need and a want and wanting to make a help to me to find those things. So one of the easiest ways was to work with one of the guys or work with him while he was doing carpet work. And learn what I could do to help the early on. Obviously the only thing I could do would be to pull hoses or to, uh, you know, just holds, uh, sprayers or move and run to the van and get stuffed so that they can stay and keep working. And as I got older I was able to do more functional things, like maybe do a little fix or repair in a closet or you know, somewhere that nobody would see. But that gave me the opportunity to experience into practice. And then as I got older and older I realized, Hey, um, I, um, capitalized on this idea that Hey, I’m going to have opportunities that he would give me. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 1: (03:49)
Honestly, I didn’t really want to be, I didn’t want to follow in my father’s footsteps. I didn’t really want to do with the business. He is, I was a big tech guy. I still am a real tech geek. Um, and then I had a good friend of mine who was a little bit older and he was in computers and he got the dream job. He got the computer job making a video game. And it’s like, Oh man, that is right there. That was like every little boy like who loves video games like I will, I will love to make the video games. If I could just make the video games, I will be on the top of Mount. Awesome, lovely thing. And I talked to him about six months a year later and I was like, man, so what is it like? He’s like, Oh, I quit playing video games. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa is in our fiber.
Speaker 1: (04:24)
All the guys like what? I was like, you get to make them. Why would you put me, where do I quit playing them is said, well because I’m in front of a computer designing and working on them, you know, functionally playing video games all day long. I don’t like, the last thing I want to do when I get home is mess with computer. So he said, I’ve taken up hunting. You know what you’re hunting. You weren’t an outdoorsy person. You were like an indoor 24 seven on the computer thing. I got it. Yeah, no, the last thing I want to do is look at a computer. Once I’ve finished working, I think it taught me a valuable lesson that sometimes you as a rare chunk of people who get to do what they love doing. But the problem is for the majority of people, what you love doing and what you’re good at sometimes aren’t that quite the same thing. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998.
Speaker 1: (05:12)
And if you love doing it and then you start doing it for a living, it becomes work. It’s no longer something that you get to do. It’s something that you have to do. And so what do you do to relax if what you do for work is the thing you did to relax. And so you must now find other hobbies, something else that you do to be able to, to go. Because like my friend’s example, he made and played video games all day long to ad nauseum. We’re working on the same project over and over and over. When he got home, he didn’t want to touch a video game ever a computer at all. He wanted to, he was dealt with, he wanted to do something different. And so I think it’s very valuable as you go through life to decide, um, what am I good at and what can I enjoy doing but not make that the thing that you is your, your lovely, the thing you love doing as a pleasure, as a, as an escape.

Speaker 1: (06:01)
Make sure you keep your escape and escape. Once he turned it into work, it becomes a work and you could no longer escape from your regular everyday thing to get to do that. Now if you unicorn, people get to do both and they somehow merge the two worlds together. That every day is a vacation. But even there when they’re done working, they have to do something else. Like if what you do for pleasure is your work, well then what do you do after you’re done with your work perfectly. He tells us since 1998 we are complete carpet. All of us continue in the next podcast. Explain how we ended up landing on the name and that as we moved through the history of complete carpet. Tulsa’s Carpet Cleaner since 1998.
