Some of us quite like the winter season. Some of us dislike it. Some of us aren’t overly bothered either way. One of us – me – despises this time of year in the same way that turkeys despise Christmas. My journey to Rosy Towers is always a pleasant one, obviously buoyed by the fact that HQ is a great place to work, but I have to admit that driving to work in the dark and going home again in the dark can take its toll on anyone. Even the happiest people in the world, think Ronald McDonald on pay-day, can get a little irked by the plummeting temperatures.
I know many of you reading this will be howling in protest at my somewhat out-of-character pessimism, but I fail to see anything remotely comforting about this time of year. I looked for some kind of inspirational quote that might help me come to terms with the fact that it’s November already, and I found an interesting one:
“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold”
Fair enough, it’s a nice quotation, one that might make you feel a little better about having to wear a second pair of gloves this morning as you scrape three inches of thick ice from your windscreen. That sense of inspiration wore off a little for me, however, when I found out it was a quote from Aristotle, the celebrated philosopher from Greece. That’s right, Greece, where you could probably fry an egg on the pavement even in December. It’s like Homer Simpson giving a lecture on portion control.
Back to Rosy Towers, a place that makes you happy even when it’s winter. We don’t have a log fire here, but we do have radiators that keep the team nice and warm. We also have regular stops for coffee to keep our energies up, not to mention doughnuts for a much-needed afternoon sugar rush. All in all, here in balmy Burgess Hill, the winter can do whatever it wants, it won’t affect the positive vibes that Rose Media Group emits.
And why wouldn’t we be all about positivity? When they seek out the best B2B PR Sussex has to offer, our clients know that a cheerful countenance, a friendly approach and an ambitious, can-do attitude will go a long way. It would be a little inaccurate to say every day is a summer’s day at Rosy Towers, but as author Henry David Thoreau once said:
“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter”
Now THAT’S a quote worth memorising. Are you listening, Aristotle?
