Chaos, that's what I found in the company when I got back from a work trip. The secretaries were on a sit-down strike, the salesmen had practically abandoned their duties, the counselors and commanders had succumbed to despair, and the production line had dropped its performance by more than fifty percent.

I announced clearly my instructions before I left for the two-week trip to the Far East: “Everything should remain unchanged, no matter what the outcome of the sovereignist process.” We are an international company and many of our clients are spread all over the world.

But reality had surpassed all expectations. With the sovereignist process the purchase orders began to arrive for thousands, from all the points of the country and also from abroad. At the same time, a procession of companies began to change the headquarters to other parts of the country looking for greater legal security, fleeing uncertainty about the future that the situation was causing.

In our company, purchase orders had multiplied by a thousand and we were not responding to so much demand. I had to put order in everything. Make the production chain went at full speed, reprimand the secretaries and at the same time giving them encouragement, and speak with conviction to the managers to give them hope. In some hours everything changed. Each one of the people of the company was committed to the idea of helping to fulfill the commitments assumed with the clients.

I have not told you what my business is. We make dreams, and the purchase orders were very clear: Getting to live in peace and harmony among all, because together we are better.
