“He who is firm and resolute in will moulds the world to himself.”– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Resolution of will. When we battle for what’s right it is the exact time to be resolute in will.
No matter what you think about Goethe, he’s got a point. The person who is resolute in will molds the world to themselves. We see it in civil rights, we see it in business. We see it in success.
But in every opposition to success, somebody’s failure, we see it, too. It often comes down to a battle of wills, whether it be one person or the collective will. Democracy, influenced by will. The movement with the greater collective will is known for success, and the opposing movement is not. However, often the “losing” opposition moves the victorious. Compromise.
With that in mind, how resolute are you?
Resolution: An Interfanatic Quality
We’re insistent upon finishing projects. Despite setbacks, despite opposition, we feel driven to complete. That’s what we do.
Perhaps that’s why we’ve been in business for so long.
That’s certainly why we’ve completed so many projects.
Paul Neights – Attempting to Mold the World with Resolution
Paul Neights came to us about a decade ago. He had been to a couple of school board meetings and was appalled at what he’d heard. Immediately, he set about molding the world to himself – he decided he could do it better.
Ultimately, Neights did not win his position in election. But by being resolute, by taking action for what he believed in, he was able to sway the board, and some of the things he cared most about changed.
Change takes time and effort. And we don’t see Paul’s effort as a failure because in the end, he molded the world – in some small, but important way – to himself.
We were proud to be a part of this small local political campaign, and to help him mold the world the way he thought was best. Even in not winning a seat, the took a leadership role and succeeded in affecting change. We helped him put together a quick website that explained his platform, and it educated both his supporters and his opposition to his viewpoint. And what he wanted partly came true.
“…Paul Neights molded the world – in some small, but important way – to himself.”
It was fun to play a small part in this great American democracy. It was our first foray, and we’re pleased we helped an individual improve his world around him.

Ken Tyrrell resolved to bend the world to his will. He hired Jackie Stewart, then Derek Gardner, to create a world-beating F1 team. Pictured above is the “shed”, Ockham, England. This is where Ken and Derek built the Formula One World Championship Tyrrells. It doesn’t look like much. Compared to the factory at Maranello, it wasn’t much. But it was here that Ken’s resolution molded the world to his will. I was honored to go there after the restoration of the 1972 Tyrrell 006 (middle right). It is pictured with the 1970 Tyrrell 001. Ken, Derek and team built Tyrrell 006 in this shed. Derek built Tyrrell 001 in his own garage. Sadly, the shed from Ockham is gone. However, the Tyrrells live on, a testament to Ken Tyrrell and a celebration of his resolute will.
Black Lives Matter.
Resolution of will. Civil rights in America clearly have a long way to go. But as Dr. King put it, “the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.” We’re moving there, slowly but surely. Once this country rectifies its massive leadership shortfall, hopefully we’ll be able to push that arc even more the right way again.
This depends upon us. It depends upon you. It depends upon me. We depend upon each other, talking together, working together, molding the world to our vision of what is right. It depends upon our resolution of will outworking and outlasting those who work to push the world backward.
This is America.
We can do better. We’re getting back to the right path. We continue to be resolute and we shall overcome.
