Make A Point of Looking

December 18, 2015

As you press forward: executing, navigating, engaging and innovating; finding opportunities in the face of sobering threats and escalating complexities; leveraging often transient competitive advantages; and trying to be the leader you want to be –

Stopping to think about the personally relevant things that make you smile, lower your shoulders, even bring you joy, does more than make you feel good in the moment.

It makes it easier to recognize them in different forms going forward.

There’s a very good chance that if you make a point of looking for the things that make you happy throughout the rest of the day, you will find more examples, approximations and reflections of them than you’d noticed before.

When you do, stop and take it in.  Spend another moment with it.  This is the good stuff.

Now more than ever, I wish you many moments and versions of what gives you joy.

I wish you many opportunities to spark it in others.

And I wish you the gift of pausing to take it in.
