Counting My Blessings

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind for me.  

Professionally I’ve met some of the most accomplished leaders in the Human Resources industry.  People I’ve admired from afar and traded quick messages with in cyberspace. People who make a difference.  I’m trying to make a difference too.  But the bar they have set is very difficult to reach.  So I’m thinking it’s going to be a while before I start to see their tail lights ahead in the distance.

Personally I’m helping to launch a AAA Youth Hockey organization that is going to compete nationally next season against some of the best and most well-respected teams in the country.  It’s new for me…and it’s a huge undertaking.  I thought cut throat behaviors were in corporate America…try starting a high-level hockey club.

So today, as I think about all that is swirling around me…all that I’ve embraced…all of the chaos that I truly love…I’m taking a moment.

A moment to count my blessings.  Because when I add it all up, I’m the luckiest guy on the planet.  And I need to remember that every single day.

What are you thankful for?

I’d love to hear from you.

No Excuses.
