“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” —John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, 1963
As we start the holiday weekend, I hope all of you will take some time to relax and enjoy the time with your friends and family as well as reflect on what you are truly grateful for.
Here is a short video I would like to share on gratefulness. Brother David is a mentor to a very successful business owner friend of mine.
STOP. LOOK. GO!!!! A very simple message, yet very powerful.
Brother David talks about how being grateful makes us happy. What are you grateful for?
I am grateful that all of you are part of the J2 family. 2015 has been a great journey so far with all of you… Let’s close out the year strong. THANK YOU!
The other part of the equation is happiness… here is another short clip to make you happy.
Have a great weekend.
About Friday Food for Thought (FFfT)
I frequently attend conferences and retreats on entrepreneurship and leadership and while I am away, the J2 team picks up the slack, allowing me to learn to be better at what I do. I wanted to share what I was learning with my team, so I created the weekly FFfT emails in November of 2015 and have been writing them ever since.
Before long, the J2 staff began sharing the FFfT emails with their friends and family and now other leaders have asked to be included, which led to the creation of this newsletter. I hope you enjoy!
