Regardless of the time zone or continent you call home, the last decade has been nuts.

Sunday morning in Chicago I heard an older song for the first time, really. Here is the opening lyric:

Oh, the last ten years, it’s been quite trip.
Over thirty-six-hundred spins around without a cosmic slip
But within the realm of our atmosphere
We’re ’bout as out of whack as we’ve been in a million years
We watched the Y2K scare in a panic
An’ we watched as time proved Nostradamus wrong
An’ we watched as Mother Nature shook the planet
An’ cellular replaced the telephone
We lost Charlie Brown, Ray Charles an’ Johnny Cash
We even lost Superman, mmm.

Kenny Rodgers seems to understand what the furniture industry has been feeling during the last decade.

Do NOT lay down now. Now is the time to change your life, fulfill your dreams from days that have past and take market share from your competition.

If you don’t, one of your competitors will.

Dreams are built inch by inch. Little by little is how they finally come true.

Degrees are earned. Marriages are made. Children are born. Families are raised. Companies are built.

Will you please let me know what you plan on doing right now?
