What Ferguson can teach us.

Nobody expects more from us then we do.

This is the tagline for a company that launched in 1953 with $150k in starting capital and two locations. Today, Ferguson is ranked by trade publications as the largest wholesale distributor of residential and commercial plumbing supplies and pipe, valves and fittings in the United States.

It is based in Newport News, Virginia. It is approximately 900 miles from the unrest going on in Ferguson, MO, yet when I searched last night for Ferguson, there they were, right next to each other.

When I clicked on their web site, I came across their tagline and it caused me to wonder --

What can it teach us in relation to the other Ferguson, the one making headlines around the world?

If we expect more from ourselves than others do of us, what would that look like?
