How about this weather?! I’m in shorts!
Since being vaccinated a month ago I have:
- Spent a weekend away alone with my wife for the first time in 2 years.
- Spent a weekend away with my family in a hotel and went… ya know… places!
- Went to a BBQ with my closest friends who I haven’t seen in person since November (and February last year before that).
- Went to a MLB game.
I feel like I am playing catch up for lost time. I am excited and optimistic.
Times like these it is easy to feel GRATITUDE and CELEBRATE.
In the corporate world, and in life in general, I think there is more opportunity to show GRATITUDE and to ACKNOWLEDGE and CELEBRATE others.
Do you and your team just check boxes? Do you complete something and then just move on? Do you spend more time focusing on the “losses” or opportunity for improvement than the “wins” and accomplishments
GRATITUDE and CELEBRATION is a choice.
I can’t tell you how important it is to celebrate the wins and especially to celebrate others.
We bring out the best in each other and connect better when we acknowledge our teammates and show that we are grateful for them.
Maybe even some people in your personal life could use some acknowledgement? Maybe you could?
I want to celebrate and acknowledge you! Great job just making it through the pandemic and being here today. It wasn’t easy and you did it. Thanks for being so resilient and awesome.
Get outside and celebrate yourself in this warm weather. Treat yourself to something nice. You deserve it.
