Little up, everyday

February 28, 2011

“Little up, everyday” was a term used by some of the Toyota sensei’s to try to encourage their trainees that when a challenge looks unbelievably daunting (like a very long staircase), it is easier to think of just trying to get up a few stairs each day. In a way, this is “kaizen” thinking – small improvements over time.

Little up - Hustle up the Hancock

Jennifer Molski and Tony Manos of 5S Supply made it to the top!

With this in mind, I would like to acknowledge Jennifer Molski, Customer Care Manager from 5S Supply as she has completed her eighth “Hustle up the Hancock” on Sunday, February 27, 2011. Each year, more than 4,000 people race to the top of John Hancock Center to raise funds for lung disease research, advocacy and education for the Respiratory Health Association of Metropolitan Chicago. The event is a world class stair climb and offers a full 94-flight climb.

This was my first year participating in the climb and the thought of “little up” kept me going all the way to the top. Congratulations to all the climbers on a job well done. – Tony

    “Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but by the number of moments that take your breath away!” Congratulations Tony – I am so proud of you!
