The Pre-Game Speech to the TSheets Team

Published

The Global Launch for TSheets is Tuesday (tomorrow). If you’re asking yourself, “Didn’t TSheets already launch their product?” The answer is yes, our online timesheet is launched and we have had rapid viral growth.  However, we have been waiting for the right time to officially announce to 50 – 100 million people that TSheets is the best time tracking tool and that our goal is to become the most used time tracking tool in the world. Literally.

With that said, we have been waiting for this date to come for almost two years! For those of you who are married . . . It almost feels like the same type of anticipation you get the night before your wedding. The thoughts that go through your mind are somewhat similar . . . “Will the market say – Yes, I will embrace TSheets?” “We’ve thought through every detail – Twice! Will all of the logistics come together?” “Will the market rain with other information and distract from the launch?” Or for those that thrive on competition . . . The feeling is similar to the few moments before the competition is ignited. A football game’s first huddle or the kick-off of a soccer game. As the first blow of the whistle draws near, the anticipation gets thicker by the second. Get the picture?

Now that the time for TSheets has arrived, as the CEO, I sent an email to the Team giving them my “Vince Lombardi speech” before the big game. Someone recommended that I post the email in my blog . . . So, you get an insider’s view of what it would be like to be on the TSheets Team:

Development Team / Marketing Team,

I think this is a good time to communicate my thoughts about the team and the potential that lies within our reach . . . In life, it isn’t often that one has the opportunity to be on a team that is building something great. Many people and many businesses try and pose themselves as great but few ever truly become great. It’s one thing to have a group of people with extraordinary talent, or a group of people that work together as a team, or a group of people with a deep commitment, or a group of people willing to sacrifice, or a group of people with deep rooted work ethics, or a group of people that believe in a mission of an organization . . .  It’s a COMPLETELY different and remarkable juncture when you get all of those characteristics wrapped up into one team. I present to you – The Dream Team.

Given the resources we have, and the knowledge that our greatest enemy is to be satisfied with attaining ‘Good’, our goal should never be short of achieving ‘Great’. Regardless of the outcome over the next few days, Make no mistake – We will become the most used time tracking tool in the world.

I am very thankful to be a part of something this exceptional.

With Great Expectation,

Matt
