Some years back, Gigi, my lovely wife of 40 years had some needed help in our home as she prepared for a special event that many friends, clients and guests were invited to.
Several days prior to the event, and as I walked in our home and through the kitchen from a program I had been speaking at, I reached out my hand to our guest assistant to introduce myself.
She took my hand, and with a puzzled look simply said…….”You’ve never worked a day in your life, have you?”
I was a little shocked and put off by her surprising response…..but then…..her perspective is her reality and I just moved on through the kitchen and shut the door to my office behind me.
I’ve joked with Gigi many times about that comment and what it is I really do, and that is……..think for a living!
In today’s world, we’re drowning in information but desperate for direction.
We’re overloaded with data, but unable to figure out what it all means.
We’re bombarded with images and messages that tell us nothing.
We’re stuck in corporate structures in which numbers and facts endlessly multiply but good ideas never see the light of day.
I could be wrong, but what I believe is that the world needs more people who think for a living…….then……actually do something with it.
YOU are that person!
And if you don’t think you currently are, become one.
The world needs people that can think and then take positive action.
Today’s a great day to start………why not go think awhile this morning and take positive action this afternoon.
YOU can do it…….I know you can!
Smiles, have a GREAT week and Keep on Seeking…Mark
