Today I had the pleasure of addressing a group of Hometown Heroes – people in our community who have made it a better place to live.

I introduced the quote below and thanked them for tapping in to their own power to make a difference in our community – helping people get food, housing, medical treatment.  Raising money.  Saving lives.

It’s important to do the same in  our every day office lives.  It’s easy to say:

Okay – I’ll admit it. I’ve heard the same phrases in conversations with myself.

We have no power. We might as well give up or give in.

Please don’t give up OR give in!

Post this week’s quote as a reminder that we all have power.

We might just need a little help finding it and using it.

The way Mr. Parsons, Mr. Lewis and others did in Angels Everywhere.

This week’s quote is a beautiful reminder.

let there be angels everywhere

Let There Be Sprinkles Everywhere

Working, shopping, wrapping, decorating, cooking, partying…it’s enough to make a person sick.
And tired and stressed and maybe even a bit Scrooge-like.
Terrible for the morale and productivity of any person, any leader, any team.

This week’s quote stems from a story that has contributed to the prevention and reversal of much Scrooge-like behavior over the years. Because of that, it has become a tradition to share it far and wide.
