|Decor at Museum Tower
However, those expectations were blown out the water as soon as I pulled up to Museum Tower.
We were greeted by a slew of greeters working the event and upon entering the event space on the 42nd floor of Museum Tower with panoramic views of downtown Dallas, I realized this was not going to be a boring, uninspired event!
Breakfast was served on polished silver service platters and we were treated to a great architectural history of Dallas by architect Bob Borson. It was informative and the historical perspective gave me a new appreciation for the commitment to great architecture in Texas!
|Our Rides: 2015 Escalades
But my greatest take away from our half day experience went beyond looking at some houses riding in a nice vehicle. As I spoke with Signe Smith, Principal with Smitharc Architects, for example, as she described the details and thought processes that went into creating the residence, I realized that the methodical, professional and attention to detail was on another level! The owners stated before building that "they wanted to feel like a vacation home every time they walked in" (because they were hard working entrepreneurs)....right then and there I knew that the reason so many of us are inspired by brands like Architectural Digest and Cadillac is because their primary goal is excellence in all they do!
That day is still inspiring me to assess how I can bring even more excellence to what I do, how I do it and when I do it. Striving for the most impactful business (quality vs quantity) is what separates those organizations that only meet the needs of its customers and those that exceed the expectations of its target customers.
