One to Remember

Muhammad Ali, considered to be the world’s greatest heavyweight boxer, died late Friday night, at age 74. Strikedeck pays homage to one of the most inspirational boxers by showcasing five quotes that CS folks should take to heart. We all know that executing on Customer Success, Support, and Service is tough job, and requires a lot of grit and perseverance. This is also true because customer-facing work is always underrated and underappreciated, but is essential for the continued success of a company and their customers. Let’s celebrate Muhammad Ali’s life by drawing motivation from his efforts, and putting that level of commitment into our own heavyweight championships.

Muhammed Ali was more than an outstanding athlete: he was a catalyst for positive change. He stood true to his beliefs, and went to jail during the prime of his boxing career, rather than fight in a war he did not believe in. This heroic action influenced generations of athletes to follow him in harnessing their fame for social good. Ali was a champion boxer who proclaimed himself “The Greatest” and then spent a lifetime living up to the billing; let’s hope that we can all follow his example. Celebrate Customer Success with these emboldening quotes, and raise a glass to a champion boxer who lived an extraordinary life, both inside and out of the boxing ring.
