Showing Up!

I spoke yesterday in Winnipeg for Aviso and I met a young man named Britton.
Britton was the A/V support for the conference from PSAV for the Hilton Winnipeg Airport Suites.
I have met hundreds of AV people but what made this young man amazing was he was dressed in a suit and tie, he smiled and ran around all day with such enthusiasm.
We all have a choice how we show up at work.

Humboldt Broncos

My prayers and condolences go out to all of the families of the Humboldt crash on the weekend.

I can’t stop thinking about how these families are suffering and how nothing in my world this week is stressful.

Be grateful today for everything that you have.

Random Acts of Kindness

My audience member Sherrie gave me a great idea. On a tough day for her sister, they went around and delivered food and drinks to people working in their city. It inspired me to bring Tim’s cards to leave for the hotel staff that clean my rooms each week.
People keep asking me about what my sister and I did on this day for her 37th wedding anniversary. We anticipated this would be a rough day for her as her husband had passed away less than 4 months earlier. Technically … every day is rough. Somehow we took a really bad day and turned it into a fairly good day. We had fun, we made people smile, we brought joy to others who could have been having a rough day themselves. It was great to do something positive … better with my sister … way better than being alone with our thoughts. We are looking forward to doing this again.
