Taking a #DifferentDrive with Patrick Murphy

At Tech Valley Shuttle we have the opportunity to come in contact with people influencing and help people throughout the capital region. Partrick Murphy is one of those people. Here is what Patrick had to say about his day to day here in the capital district.

  Q: What drives (motivates) you to achieve or strive for greatness every day?

Pat: What gets me out of bed every morning is knowing that I have the ability to put everyone I meet with in a better position tomorrow and beyond than they are in today.  

  Q:What is the best advice a mentor or someone you admired gave you early in your career?

 Pat: If you enter into everything you do with good intentions and lead with your heart, results will follow

 Q: What advice can you give to people (millennials, generation Z) just starting out in their career?

Pat: Figure out what you makes you happy, and go do it!

 Q: What qualities do you think are needed to be successful in today’s workplace?

 Pat: Collaboration and empathy, too often in my career experiences I’ve seen a lack of both of these qualities in organizational structure which led to poor morale and poor results

 Q: How do you master your “to-do” list?

 Pat: Everything starts with discipline.  Anyone can be “motivated” or “want” to get the job done.  But it’s only those who are disciplined enough to do it no-matter-what that succeed.

 Q: What’s the best advice a mentor or boss every gave you?

  Pat: The most successful individuals, regardless of how you define success, are willing to do the things that other people won’t

Q: How do you achieve a good work-life balance?

 Pat: Being your own boss helps, and so does working from home temporarily.  But managing your time and planning ahead will allow you to be present in both your work and personal life.
