Formula for Appreciation

My favorite holiday is upon us. Thanksgiving for me is about gathering those whom you love, creating a memorable meal, and reminding myself about everything that I am thankful for. I have been fortunate enough to integrate this concept of appreciation in my everyday life.

Being the engineer that I am, I tend to communicate through formulas. My favorite mathematician Einstein is quoted as saying “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” By considering a slight change in your daily routine, you can drive massive success. With that said, my life formula for you all to ponder this Thanksgiving is:

Defined terms:

1) HC: Doing specific actions to take yourself from staying in your head and thinking of yourself to coming from your heart and connecting with others.

2) DB: Define your beliefs and communicate those beliefs consistently with all that you say and do.

3) GB: Give back regularly without agenda.


Many of us believe that the world is on the precipice of a major shift, life as we know it changing forever. Whether you believe this or not, I invite you to embrace the fact that leadership is needed today more than ever. My belief is that we need to devote ourselves to mastering how to support others so we can contribute to what lies ahead. I welcome you to join me on this journey!
