Thinking on Thanksgiving

Thinking on Thanksgiving

Today, millions of people give thanks with their friends and family. For some, it’s a time to reflect on the past year and all the joys in life. I’ve made it a personal tradition to publicly thank people on this site for helping me throughout the year.

So here’s the list of who & what I’m thankful for:

  • My boys: Parker, Nash, and Ian
  • My mother for helping me keep it together and always being there
  • Beth and MB for allowing me to be a part of their lives (and their family is great)
  • My neighbors, Martina, Jon, and Adrian
  • My doc who suggested starting krav maga
  • My friends — I hope other people have friends like I do — Jeff, Steve R, David P, Jason, Phil, David H, Steve A, Ed & Brandy, John W, Debbie G, Matt
  • Traditional Bank – Sarah and Buddy
  • Vistage: Lou and the speakers
  • WebMedley
    • The team is better than ever
    • Our clients who help us progress and allow us the opportunity to help their companies grow
    • The lesson that great work needs little said about it
    • All the referrals from our clients and fans of the company
    • The lesson that all change requires friction and energy
    • Clients and co-workers who are also friends
  • Things I am thankful for
    • Pandora
    • Evernote – as I’ve aged like a fine wine, my memory needs help and this service does it for me
    • My phone
    • Kindle
    • Dropbox
    • My fräulein (pic is large!)
  • Other
    • Take advantage of time — we don’t get any of it back
    • All the genuine smiles I’ve seen on people this year
    • Getting in shape — tougher now, but worth it
    • Surrounding myself with happy, open-minded people

I look forward to 2012 and writing this again next year!
