What's on your desk? DJ Moody
Ask DJ Moody about his desk at Brandman University's Enrollment Center and he won't tell you about what he sees out the window. Although the view of Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square is stunning, the enrollment systems analyst says it’s the inspirational quotes, family artwork and coworkers surrounding his desk that make it amazing.
“I’m a big fan of quotes, so I usually have a few around my desk and on my whiteboard. The two I have up pretty consistently are from Tony Robbins and Pirke Avot. Robbins’ quote keeps me centered on appreciation and the line from Pirke Avot has always been kept things in context for me.”
Moody says the quotes are great reminders to stay on his path, but his true motivation is his boys, Asher and Ezra. His workspace is adorned with photos, handprints and a cup with their name on it. “They’re my heart, so a couple of reminders are always good to keep me going and focused on what’s important,” Moody said.
Moody explained that the view seems great and the items on his desk are meaningful but “I sit next to some incredible people. Steve Farnsworth, my boss, keeps things focused but light and creative. Marisa Sullivan, our Enrollment Coordinator, is one of the most caring people I’ve ever worked with. She plays tough but takes care of us all, and I can’t imagine the ECC without her.”
