Reaching out to friends that inspire and motivate me is something I try to do constantly. In a recent conversation with just that kind of friend, she suggested I watch this video, from the Moxie Institute, as it speaks to the value of what our respective companies bring to teams and leaders.
Not a day goes by without something to learn, some way to grow and improve, something to appreciate. The August, 2013 blog on Scientific American Mind entitled, The Real Neuroscience of Creativity, by Scott Barry Kaufman, is a great example of information that we can apply to daily life.
A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine was enjoying a visit in Thailand, when a motorcycle accident put him in the hospital. He was hospitalized for 6 broken ribs. Shortly after, a blood clot moved to the left side of his brain. A neuro surgeon did what he could to relieve the pressure in his brain, but the injury left Don in a coma. He left many of us thousands of miles away wishing for the opportunity to see his smile once more. His son, daughter and best friend, a retired ER physician and a medical transport service transported him back to Whitefish, Montana, where loved ones were able to say goodbye.
