As I write this I am working on a fundraiser for children with cancer. It is a humbling chore. In my other life I spent many years working in the Pediatric ICU. I am reminded of the real challenges that these children go through – the pain, the procedures, the loneliness, the ultimate lack of power to control their situations.
In an odd, small way, it mimics some of the struggles that we have as a result of the poor economy. No one is alone or immune to these challenges –No manufacturer, no distributor, no store, no customer – No one. But these sick children challenge us to keep things in perspective. We DO have choices and we ARE in control of the ‘procedures’ that our businesses undergo.
We are reminded as this year ends to embrace the power of choice! We are blessed with hard work! While we may not enjoy all aspects of it – we have the luxury of determining how we direct it.
May your New Year be one of hope – guided by new procedures – that provide you the wonderful success that all hard work deserves.
