We seek to share our values, to which we will always adhere in order to realize our vision.
By engaging in our work with extreme passion in service to the same values,
those of us who have gathered in the TRUNK will bring our goals one step closer to being achieved.
Be aware of everything happening around you as if it concerns you directly.
What should you be doing, for our guests, for TRUNK,
for those working together with you? If you were the owner, what would you do?
What happens to the company, what happens to our guests,
what happens to our coworkers?
If you are deeply interested in anything and everything around you,
if you engage with it from the perspective of ownership, you and TRUNK,
will be able to expand the available possibilities and grow.
We will not do things because we were told to do them; instead,
we will think for ourselves and act with passion and responsibility.
To achieve our goals, and to further improve our abilities, we will challenge our own limits and never give up. We will trust that taking on challenges without fearing the results will lead to further growth.
Taking on challenges is addictive. Once it becomes a habit,
you lose the ability to feel safe without doing so.
You will have become a true challenger once you reach this point.
I believe that everyone here seeks for Team TRUNK to become
just such a group of challengers.
Challenges in and of themselves have value; they are not something for
which you seek value based on their results alone. What kind of challenges
are you taking on right now?
This is the question we will continuously ask ourselves.
People with the ability to take action:Just imagine how nimble and
energetic a team of such driven people could be.
Of course thinking is both important and essential.
But there are times when thinking alone cannot produce an answer.
In such times, give free reign to the part of you that would act on impulse,
and approve of the same in others. Team TRUNK gives you permission to jump the gun.
When you want to improve something, when you want to express your thanks,
when you are filled with the desire to apologize, when you grow excited in the
face of an oncoming challenge ...
Act with courage and natural instinct and something will come of it.
We must understand that finding a reason not to act is what is most disappointing.
Understanding and considering the true nature of things
Is this what is really going on?
Is my judgement based on an accurate understanding of what is really happening?
This is the ruler that we will use.
Understanding and considering the true nature of things means not adhering to
surface words and impressions, but instead ascertaining the heart
at the center of things, and judging, speaking, and thinking based on it.
We must understand that thinking and judgement not based on an accurate
perception of the true nature of things is empty and cannot produce true results or relationships of trust.
In order to understand what is really happening, it is necessary to develop the
habit of looking at thingswith both heart and mind operating at full capacity.
We will make it our custom to search for where the true.
We will strive to be called hard workers.
Work that makes use of our experience and expertise is good. However,
we seek to be the kind of people who do not run from or abandon things
we are not skilled at or that we are doing for the first time; instead,
we seek to be the kind of people who never cease putting forth effort.
For us, being called hard workers is the highest compliment: Always thinking, always studying,
always taking action, no matter when.
We know that the time we spend exerting ourselves will be an asset that
will help take us to the next level, even if it does not appear to produce immediately visible results.
We will remember that no matter how much effort you put in,
no matter how hard you work, if the final quality is poor,
you cannot say that you have achieved anything.
Of course, the process is important as well, and failure to do conscientious work here yields neither growth nor learning, but we will always dedicate ourselves to demonstrating maximum effort at the end and pursuing the ultimate in quality.
If we go all in during that last, most difficult time to achieve the utmost in quality, our work will result in extraordinary things and we will be granted a sense of satisfaction beyond imagination.
"Normally we do things like this." "It's always done this way."
"This is how we did it before ... "
We are surrounded by people who deem past experience,
previous successes, and the status quo to be right and proper.
We will not be able to achieve our vision with such conservative thinking, nor through choices based on the same.
We seek to question what has come before and choose only that
which no one has done before, that which is of extraordinary originality, that which is truly "us," and we will extol those who do the same.
We will adhere to a value system that demands that we have courage, conviction, and that we be innovative.
We must not allow what is of benefit to ourselves alone to take precedence.
Powerful connections cannot be created by considering and
choosing that which only profits us.
We will consider and chose based on a broader perspective,
one that always places the benefit and happiness of others first.
Contributing means to strive to be of use to someone or for something we deem good.
For our guests, for our comrades, for our work partners:
We will start by establishing a way of thinking that
emphasizes contributing to those close to us.
This way of thinking, in turn, will lead to contributions to society.
Being sincere: This means to be polite, modest, and considerate.
We will aim to be sincere and do sincere work.
Being polite means doing things with care while taking the
time to see if anyone is having a bad time.
Being modest means being aware that there will always be people better
at something than yourself, never being arrogant, and always being reflective.
And being considerate means thinking about the people who you have
made happy through your actions and seeing their happiness as your own.
We trust that we will be able to create deep sympathy and emotion as long as
we are able to gather together sincere people doing sincere work.
Everything that we offer, everything our guests buy,
everything they experience must always, at all times, reflect good taste.
This is something we believe in strongly,
and it is important enough that we seek to dedicate ourselves to it.
The world is overflowing with too many products and places.
We are producing something for that world, and that is why we cannot produce something with no flair, no style, or that is only half complete.
We will trust our feelings and exhibit good taste.
And we shall share that with others.
We also vow to have good taste as people.
Start you appliation here. We look forward to meeting teammates who will help build TRUNK.
