Fiber Optic Cabinets, Cables, Pedestals and Terminals

Five years ago this month, I stood before an amazing group of people and announced the formation of what is now Clearfield. Unveiling the name and logo, we talked about our hopes for building a company that had a strong vision for what fiber management and connectivity would and could be, but that was grounded in the practicality of making it happen.  As the celebration of Thanksgiving is behind us and we look forward to the upcoming holiday season, we at Clearfield wanted to thank you for your business and support during the first 5 years of our journey.

I’m not much for TV and so I don’t follow Oprah, but I have bought an “O” Magazine to pass the time on an airplane. Her suggestion of writing in a daily gratefulness journal hit home for me – over the past year, it has reminded me to appreciate not only our major milestones, but also those little successes we can sometimes take for granted.

Jon Gordon, best selling author, writes beautifully of the power of gratefulness and of two simple words: Thank You. He writes:

“They are two words that have the power to transform our health, happiness, athletic performance and success. Research shows that grateful people are happier and more likely to maintain good friendships. A state of gratitude, according to research by the Institute of HeartMath, also improves the heart’s rhythmic functioning, which helps us to reduce stress, think more clearly under pressure and heal physically. It’s actually physiologically impossible to be stressed and thankful at the same time. When you are grateful, you flood your body and brain with emotions and endorphins that uplift and energize you rather than the stress hormones that drain you.

“Gratitude and appreciation are also essential for a healthy work environment. In fact, the number one reason why people leave their jobs is because they don’t feel appreciated. A simple thank you and a show of appreciation can make all the difference.

“Gratitude is like muscle. The more we do with it, the stronger it gets. In this spirit here are 4 ways to practice Thanksgiving every day of the year.”
