#AtoZChallenge — D is for Dynamic


“Why?” Guenter asked.

“I don’t know. It’s always been done this way.” Meg shrank in her seat as she spoke. She knew what would happen next.

“So, this is how it has always been done. Is that any reason to continue doing it this way?”

Meg mouthed the words as Guenter spoke. The man never stopped asking questions. If she was honest, Guenter deserved a little credit. He ran the company better than his father. Guenter had made the company more profitable, created new products and sold new customers while keeping the old ones happy.

Even with all the innovations, and modernistic changes Guenter embraced, he didn’t turn his back on the past. He valued his father’s longtime employees and made sure there was a place for them in his new improved world. Still change was difficult for most people. Meg swallowed and looked Guenter straight in the eyes.

“Well Guenter, why don’t we look? I am sure we can improve the process.”

Guenter beamed at Meg before he threw himself into the job he loved.


Keep on writing.
