The Top 100 Movie Quotes for HR Pros: #82 is "If You Ain’t First, You’re Last…" (Talladega Nights)

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.
