Core Values & Mission Statement
Modern Grit's core values apply to our company and our lives. These are not just words on a page, they are standards that we expect our company & customers to live by on a day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute basis. Having core values makes decision making easier, and it makes going to bed at night a pleasurable experience knowing that you did the right thing.Be CourageousCourage is not the absence of fear - its feeling the fear doing it any way. We don't believe second guessing a goal that is worthwhile. We don't believe in fearing failure. We believe in ourselves, the bigger picture, and the fruits to come if we are all moving in the right direction.
Be ProactiveWe don't wait for things to go wrong or pile up before we do something. We face adversity before it shows up at the front door. Being proactive leads to a life that looks easy to the rest of the world, but all it takes is being ahead of the curve.
Take OwnershipWe blame no one but ourselves for our mistakes. Even if a circumstance is out of our control, we believe that if we were proactive the problem never would have arisen. All that matters is solving the problem and taking matters into our own hands...never diffuse responsibility.
Its Always Long TermEvery decision we make is about the long term benefit of our customers and our company.
Relationships are EverythingWe believe that the people we share our time with give us the ultimate fulfillment. We believe in giving more than you receive, and making sure that every person you come in contact with leaves better than when you first saw them. Help. Give. Care.
Be of ServiceWe believe that serving the community and the world around us is the ultimate contribution we can make to the world. Even when we are "on the clock" we are there to be of service. We make decisions based on what is best for our customers, our team and the people in our lives, not what's best for ourselves.
Make Learning A LifestyleTraining is repeated, not just a one time affair. We are open minded in our view of the world and are constantly looking for information that both challenges and builds upon what we already know. We know that the only way to get better is to learn something new every single day. If you learn something new every day to get 1% better, how much better will you be in a year?
Be HopefulWe believe that we are always around the corner from a breakthrough. No matter what our current circumstances look like, we have the grit to see it through.
Communication is KeyWe listen with open ears and open hearts. Communication is key for healthy relationships, a thriving career, and preserving through day to day challenges.
Simplicity over ComplexityWe keep the main thing the main thing. The improvement of your life, our company and the world in and of itself.
