Speaker 1: (00:01)
Welcome to the carpet DM podcast. I am your host Nathan Sabrinas. We’re continuing our extended series on the origins of complete carpet, carpet cleaning Tulsa. Since 1998 we are complete carpet. So give us a call today at (918) 494-7093, uh, continuing to as vain. Last episode we talked with my daughter who is the face of red carpet. She ended up on the side of a van when she was around six. So that was the, let’s see, 15 years ago. So about seven years in when we did a rebranding. Um, and we’ll, we’ll get to that point as we go along. But going back to the original where we got the contract with the Tulsa housing authority until that first year we started in, uh, originally it was just trying to find odds and ends to make money to start a computer business, but instead ended up landing the contract for the Tulsa housing authority, install all the carpets in their properties that they manage and care for.

Speaker 1: (00:56)
And so as we were working through that, the first year I thought it would just be a onetime thing, go through a figure, somebody would know that I got in the contract, the upset and outbid me the next year. And it continued on for another, um, I believe five or six years, seven years, maybe seven years that we continued with that contract. Um, and kept having, uh, the kept winning each year cause nobody wanted to compete with us or I guess we were just cheaper than everybody. Um, well we just had really good favor and during this time I am not somebody, I can’t do anything. Um, part way. And I think this is something that’s important that everybody, not just cause you’d use complete carpet, but I’d love for everyone to have this as their mantra, that lifestyle. It’s sad that we’re in a, uh, Connie or a culture where, uh, if you just show up and do your work, that’s considered success. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa is in our fiber.
Speaker 1: (01:42)
And when I was growing up, that was not even the barrier to entry. It like you had to show up early and you had to do the work. But do it in an excellent way to be able to be considered successful. Whereas now if you’ll just show up and just do the job that you’re being paid to do, that’s considered to be success. And I think that’s not successful. That’s where you’re running into people who have poor attitudes and showing up late and not doing it but a year you’re just glad it’s a warm body. It’s just somebody taking the place. And so one of the mantras, one of our core tenants that we have is um, if you, and this is a great question to ask yourself, if you are in each person you should, this is something you should write this down. This should be written down and something you have over your, um, over your workstation or over your, uh, any space that you do. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa since 1998.
Speaker 1: (02:23)
Cause whether you run a company of a thousand or 10,000 people or whether you are just taking care of your own house, whether you are a top CEO or you are a supervisor taking care of little jelly face toddlers, you need to ask yourself this question all the time to challenge yourself. Said, if you were paid more, would you do a better job? Probably repeat that because it’s so, it’s so powerful in what it has and what it will challenge you in the thought process because many times we will do something but it’s not in my job description or you know, if I’m going to kind of halfway do it now, if you, if you paid me more than I’d actually fully do it, but right now I’m just going to, I’m going to give it a light dusting. I’m not going to really thoroughly scrub it down. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa is in our fiber.
Speaker 1: (03:09)
I’m just going to kind of lightly dust it because I’m not really getting paid to put a lot of effort into this. And we subconsciously do this all the time and it doesn’t even have to be that we’re getting paid. Sometimes it can just be, um, in our household or dealing with our kids. We think, Hey, if, if I was getting paid to watch someone else’s kids, where I still treat them the same way, if I was a babysitter someplace, would anybody be proud of the way that I just behaved in front of my, my wife or in front of my customer or in front of my children? And a lot of times the answer we know in our own heart, our own soul is no. And so the question is, if I was paid more, would I do a better job? So if I was paid more, would I do a better job? Carpet Cleaner Tulsa since 1998.
Speaker 1: (03:50)
And the answer should always be no. You could not pay me more to do a better job than I am right now. Now, if I was paid more, could I do more work? That’s a different, that’s a different answer to a different question. Like you’re getting paid to do something. You don’t also go out and fix the car while mowing the yard while putting a new roof on and while performing a, uh, your version of Hamilton, I mean if you, you want to do the work that you were paid to do, but are you doing the work you were paid to do to the best of your ability? We all know in high school that that a friend and that classmate is somebody who always got great grades, but then all of a sudden they got a bad grade and you’re like, well, why did you get a bad grade? Carpet Cleaner Tulsa is in our fiber.
Speaker 1: (04:30)
What happened? And they’d go ask the teacher and the teacher says, Oh, well I know what you’re capable of. You’ve mailed that one in. That was, that was, well it wasn’t technically correct. Yeah, it was technically correct. But I know you can do better. This was probably one of the worst pieces you’ve done. It’s not a bad piece. It’s just not up to your own, your standard people. We know, we can tell when somebody is behaving under their potential and we know that they could have done a better job with something. So you need to ask that question of yourself all the time. As you’re doing things. I find that source of excellence inside of yourself where you say, because we all have it. I mean every person on the face of the earth, even Billy Graham at times that he got up there thought, I’ll just mail this one. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa since 1998.
Speaker 1: (05:08)
I’m not, I’m not going to really give it my best and I’m not gonna give it my all because I’m tired. We all have some reasons. Some voice in our head is telling us a plethora of reasons of things according to Cobia of ideas that are rattling around our brain of telling us why right now, whatever it is that we’re currently doing, we won’t do. That is absolutely normal thing. Everyone experiences and you have to combat that every time and say, that’s true. Absolutely. I am a bit tired. Does that mean I need to focus a little harder because I’m tired of, you know what? That’s true. My foot is a little sore. Does that mean I need to push a little harder to focus a little harder to overcome that soreness? That’s true. No one’s really even paying attention to what I’m doing right now, but I’m paying attention and my, and I know in my own integrity how good or bad a job I’m going to do. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa is in our fiber.
Speaker 1: (05:55)
That’s true. No one will ever see this. But right now I’m practicing for the time that someone will see them. Cause everything you do at private is eventually what you’ll do in public. Everything you do in your life is practice. You are always practicing. Practicing is what we do throughout a whole life. So that when we add that moment, when we have the opportunity to be on the center stage, be out in front, that will, our practice will have paid off. Uh, LeBron James did become an amazing basketball player by practicing, by playing basketball on the games he practiced before the game so that when he got to the game, he was prepared. So prepare yourself and make sure that everything you do is up to a high standard. We’ll continue this in the next podcast. Carpet cleaning Tulsa. Since 1998 we are complete carpet.
