~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. - Red Auerbach

During a leadership seminar in Illinois, I asked several participants to share the most rewarding experiences of their careers. One man told what it meant to speak at the funeral of a valued employee. Another shared the story of a former drug addict he had helped to become a productive manager. A woman unfolded a well-worn note from a fellow worker she carried in her purse - and she read it to the group. The note said, "If you ever get discouraged, remember that you have made a real difference in one person's life - mine!"

Do you see the pattern? What matters most are the relationships. Perhaps you have heard the phrase, "It's lonely at the top." Of course it is for those who have chosen to isolate themselves. However, the opposite is true for the man or woman who embraces the fact that power rises from the bottom to the top.

Early one morning, my husband, who works in a funeral home, woke me, complaining of severe abdominal pains. We rushed to the emergency room, where they gave him a series of tests to determine the source of the pain.

My husband decided not to have me call in sick for him until we knew what was wrong. When the results came back, the nurse informed us that, true to our suspicions, he was suffering from a kidney stone.

I turned to my husband and asked, "Would you like me to call the funeral home now?"

With an alarmed look, the nurse quickly said, "Ma'am, he's not THAT sick!"

Things to Do when Stuck in Singapore's Changi Airport
