The “Kiss-mas Company”…Selling handpicked mistletoe out of a wagon to my neighbors.
My 5-year old daughter Lizzie came home from preschool absolutely ecstatic. She had just learned of a reading competition over the next few months and the top 3 readers would get a trophy. Completely matter-of-fact, that declared she was going to get one of those trophies no matter what. She didn’t yet know how to read. But our family motto is “We can do hard things.” So my wife Hannah and I of course encouraged her. Then we discovered that the previous year’s winner had read 740+ books!
We had our silent doubts, but Lizzie didn’t let anything stop her. For the next few months, we rarely saw her without a book in her hands, struggling to sound out the words. In the end… she read 806 books! Seeing her on stage receiving her award was my proudest moment. It wasn’t just the trophy (though it was larger than any trophy I’ll earn in my lifetime). It was seeing her set a goal, work her little tail off, and make sacrifices to achieve that goal. When I grow up I want to be just like her!
Family… for me, it’s my reason for existence. It influences everything I do at work and in the community.
Rather than work-life balance, I am a firm believer in work-life alignment…feeling comfortable being the same person at work that you are at home. I need to win, and do so in a way that will make my family proud.
We can do hard things.
