"I feel it's one of the reasons we're on the planet—to make your life interesting and make other people's lives interesting. If you're not out there, you're not doing it. Everyone here knows that that's my view. Many of them have jumped into getting engaged in boards and love it. And it's important for us to carve time out for that. It's great for the people and the company."

"One has to look in the mirror and ask why," Vos says. "What do we look like? Being in business will only be attractive to our children if we look like happy, well-rounded, enthusiastic people, and that's only going to happen if continue to reinvent ourselves."
