Because we are so busy with our own agenda and tasks, it’s easy to overlook the needs of those around us. As I watched this beautiful Russian video, I was reminded again of the need to be alert to the needs of others, stop what I am doing, and lend a helping hand. The truth is, we are all in this together.
Last Friday, I had the privilege of hosting the Chick-fil-a Leadercast in Atlanta, Georgia. Approximately five thousand people attended the live event and another 115,000 people watched via satellite in 750 locations around the world.
My primary job at the conference was to listen to the speakers and summarize two or three takeaways from each for the audience. It was challenging but exhilarating.
I am looking forward to speaking to Alabama lawmakers, Chamber of Commerce executives and other business leaders, as well as state and local governmental elected officials.

Generating quality blog content is a lot of work. However, you don’t have to do it all yourself. You can use video interviews to bring in outside expertise. It’s simple and inexpensive.
I am really looking forward to speaking at Dan Miller’s Innovate event. The last one was incredible.
When bad things happen, it’s natural to ask questions like, “Why did this happen to me?” or “What did I do to deserve this?” The problem with these questions is that they are unproductive and disempowering.
The bottom line is this: you can’t always choose what happens to you, but you can choose how you respond to those situations. This is where our real power—and our real freedom—is found.
