With Patrick Mosher
Guests on this world class cruise were either taking a moonlight stroll on deck or soundly asleep in their cabins. Marconi Telegraph Operators worked busily into the night, planning tomorrow night’s extravagant party. Over the telegraph lines, they gathered details from friends and family from New York to Boston so they could make the party extra special. Imagine their excitement as the plans started coming together.
Are you getting excited about an upcoming party? How do you feel the night before? A little nervous? Your excitement builds as you see the pieces fit together. You see the end in sight.
And then disruption.
Something TOTALLY unrelated crashes into your party planning.
Have you ever experienced that kind of disruption?
How do you handle it?
Today's the last day of 2018. CONGRATULATIONS! Another year completed! How do you feel today? Refreshed? Invigorated? Tired? Glad that the year is closing? Looking forward to a fresh start?
I'm often conflicted on 'special' days like New Year's. On one hand, what a great mindset shift to assemble our brains around something new and exciting that happens today. On the other hand, what makes this day any more special than any other. Not to downplay the specialness of the day, but why not UP-PLAY every Day?
Its December 31st. What a GREAT day to talk about deadlines! Did you set a New Year's Resolution a year ago? Did you make it happen?
The word DEADLINE isn't an uplifting word, is it? Death and Lines. Well, it's not far from the truth!
Definition: DEADLINE – a line drawn within or around a prison that a prisoner passes at the risk of being shot.
