25 Mar Forget About It
Megan Bornhorst: Zach, how many times do you NOT come back into the office because you forgot something?
Zach Borchers: Not many! It’s enough to be a Mindset.
You probably know the feeling: you walk out of the house or the office, get in the car, and forgot your lunch bag. Or left your phone on your desk. Or put your calculator in the refrigerator. For engineer Zach Borchers, forgetting something in the office on his way home happens a lot—to the point where he’s even forgotten how many times it happens.
Zach parks at the far end of the Choice One parking lot and sits at one of the farthest seats from the front door, meaning he has to retrace 200 steps a couple of times per week. Perhaps on the next Choice One seating chart Zach can request a desk closer to the door to minimize the impact of his forgetfulness. Or we could get him a stylish Choice One fanny pack so his keys and phone are always on his person.
Thankfully, it’s just the little, fixable things that Zach forgets and not the big things: he remembers to wear green every day, never misses a chance to help a fellow Choice Oner learn a new trick in AutoCAD, and always remembers to wear a smile, even when he forgets his keys on his desk and his coat on someone else’s chair.
