Operate On Your Time-KEMOSABE Caffeine Free Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 4/14/2016

“You need to relax, Paul,” my partner of eighteen years told me as we were leaving the board room of Horizon Technology. “Everyone in this company doesn’t have the knowledge nor the drive that you have, Larry.”

“I know, Paul, but the window of opportunity for us to capitalize on our competitive advantage is closing, so if I don’t impress upon the staff a sense of urgency our sales will take a big hit this year.”

“Oh, you've impressed the sense of urgency on them Larry, perhaps too much. You need to learn to relax. Let’s get some coffee.”

Five minutes later Paul handed me a container of coffee. “Boy, Paul, this is delicious coffee.”

“I thought you would like it. It’s Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut caffeine free coffee.”

“Caffeine free?”

“Yeah, I though you could use some calmness in your day after that meeting.”

Taking a long sip of my chocolate hazelnut caffeine free coffee, I replied, “Well, Paul as you know we together have built this company to what it is today. I’m not going to miss out on this wonderful opportunity because the staff lacks a sense of urgency to get the project completed in a timely manner.”

“Larry, there you go again, getting all excited. Remember what you doctor said, learn to operate on your time. If it will make you relax, I’ll have a follow up meeting with the staff in two days and reiterate the need to get this project done in a timely matter. You just relax and enjoy your new found friend, Kemosabe caffeine free coffee. Did you know that Kemosabe means, ‘Trusted Friend’?”

“I didn’t know that. I guess I better start calling you Kemosabe from now on.”
