5 Star Wars Quotes that Helped Us Create the Perfect Water Damage Restoration Software

The day has finally arrived. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens has been released, and the power of the force has been renewed! As a fan since childhood, Star Wars has influenced my life in many ways. From a business perspective, there are many Star Wars quotes that perfectly align with setting goals and working towards success and helped us create ClientRunner: the best water damage restoration software on the market. Here are a notable few that come to mind:

1. “Do or do not. There is no try.”

– Yoda (Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back)

Perhaps the most iconic quote within the Star Wars franchise. When managing a business, there can be significant pressure from different directions. Making an attempt to accomplish a goal is a good start, but having the resolve to always ‘do’ rather than ‘try’ makes a subtle, yet powerful difference in the end. When we were designing ClientRunner’s water damage restoration software, we “did” and did not “try”.

2. “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is.”

– Yoda (Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back)

There are a lot of incredible things that come in small packages, like ClientRunner’s water damage restoration software. The current size of your business does not necessarily matter, but what’s more is your strategy and determination to succeed. Ultimately, your determination for what equates to success is your decision, but there are many advantages that a small company can offer. Find ways to grab a better foothold in your industry and focus on your own success, not the success of those casting the longest shadows. It was a hard journey for us, but we created something amazing.

3. “The force is strong with this one.”

– Darth Vader (Episode IV – A New Hope)

It didn’t take long for Darth Vader to recognize the incredible potential that radiated within Luke Skywalker. As a business owner or manager, it’s vitally important that you radiate the same confidence and power that commands respect. Understand your industry, know your strengths and weaknesses, and improve qualities that make you a more responsible leader. In time, and armed with ClientRunner’s water damage restoration software, you will become a force to be reckoned with.

4. “Laugh it up, Fuzz ball.”

– Han Solo (Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back)

It’s critical that you take time to enjoy life. Take pleasure in your daily workflow and celebrate accomplishments of your business and teams. A happy work environment and team is one of the most enjoyable accomplishments you can have.

5. “Is that possible? I never ask that question until after we’ve done it.”

– Han Solo (Episode VII – The Force Awakens)

In the newest installment of the Star Wars series (don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything!), Han Solo shares that he only questions the possibility of success after accomplishing the challenge. Such as stance shows full confidence in ones abilities and assurance of success in any situation. In business, there’s always a level of uncertainty about success; by not dwelling on the “what if’s” and simple moving forward with determination and confidence, you’ll have a solid understanding of the possibilities – they are endless. Make it happen.
May the force be with you as you grow and succeed in all your endeavors!
