New series at the Capitalist: The Top 100 Movie Quotes of all time for HR Pros. In no special order, I break down the 100 movie quotes that resonate most for me as a career HR pro. Some will be funny, some will be serious... Some will tug at your heart like when the Fox voice-over guy said, "Tonight - a very special episode of 90210"... You get the vibe... I'll do it countdown-style like they're ranked, but let's face it - they're ALL special..
"If you ain't First, You're Last.."
--Reese Bobby, Talladega Nights
I like my HR pros confident and unapologetic for wanting to win.
So what other clip would I choose but Reese Bobby, father of Ricky Bobby, from Talladega Nights - saying "If you ain't first, you're last".
Words to live by. Later in the movie he says he was high when he wrote that, but that's a post for another day.
Stop apologizing for being amazing, great HR pros out there. You're different. It's OK.
You piss excellence. That's just you being you.
