Ah, yes. Thanksgiving. That special time of year when we get really thoughtful about those who mean the most to us. Those we love, those we miss, those who make a profound difference in our lives…
It’s really powerful when you think about it.
Then, of course, the next day we open up the shopping mosh pit and beat the crap out of each other at Target trying to save $100 on a TV we don’t need.
Thankful for Work Stuff
After so many years driving to hospitals for work, I now travel extensively to…wait for it…hospitals!
I know…huge change, but I’m actually thankful for that. Although nothing says “I’m blessed” like switching your commute from a car to an airplane.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Jay, you have a cool gig with a cool company and you get to do all of that traveling!
Sure, I’m thankful…that hotel rooms have irons…it’s the little things.
The really important part of Thanksgiving however, is remembering the people in our lives.
– The hiring managers that never get back to us with their feedback.
– The leaders who are afraid of social media. They keep me employed.
– The wanna be executives who are so full of themselves they miss the point of leading.
– The executives who still think the world knows how good their organizations are because…well…”they’re special!” See “permanent employment for Jay” above.
How About You
So many things to be thankful for this year. But most of all…I’m thankful that you all have a sense of humor.
Keep pushing friends…we’re going to change the world if it kills us!
I’d love to hear from you.
