Bio not provided
I am a proud member of the first Sesame Street Generation and I love that I now have an excuse to watch again and share with my kids. I learned how to read when I was 3, largely in part by what I learned on the show. When I was a teacher, I studied the educational theories behind their writing and their approach to literacy and math skills... OK, I just liked to watch the show, even when I was 20. I think the key to a 40 year success is changing with the times and appealing to kids world in every generation. Love Cookie Monster!!!!!

@MattMcWilliams2 Wow Matt, I would have hyperventilated going through that. It is so easy for individuals, families and organizations to live in the moment putting out fires and forget what brought us here and how we'll get to our desired destination.
@ErikJFisher It's such a scary world for our kids out there. I like to help them focus on the right things. I love it when my 4-y-o daughter says her prayers at night: Dear God, thanks for Mom. Dad, my Little Brother , my Grandma and chocolate chip cookies" I hope they always have that thankful heart and keep their focus on the important things.
Technically, you could if you're laying on a lounger on the beach, you can see your feet AND the horizon too, it's pretty cool :0)
I hear you!! It's easy for me to try to deal with the urgent tasks of today, without reminding myself how those fit in the bigger plan.
Now I know why the potatoes I planted look a little crooked :)
Uncertainty has been a constant in my life. I've lived in 19 different homes since I was born (different one every year ha ha ha), 13 with my mom and dad and 6 with my husband and children. I used to say that I like stability, but the truth is I just learned to be resilient and quickly learn how deal with change. I used to fight it, now I embrace it. I've learned that when I take the "stage dive" in faith, into the unknown, the arms of a loving Father are always there to catch me.
@Skropp I thought so. High Cs demand accuracy on advertised posts.!
@Bret Again, I think it's a choice on both sides. I understand why servers, cashiers, salespeople get frustrated. They don't get treated with lots of respect by their managers and their clients. They don't get paid high wages. They are, like Jana said, underpaid and overworked and they are the face of the business to the public. However... any person can make a choice to be thankful for the job they have, even if it's not ideal or temporary and make the best of it because the customer is not responsible for their situation. They are there to buy a product or a service. And it's definitely the leaders' responsibility to treat their team with dignity, appreciate their hard work and provide the training they need to perform with excellence.

You shouldn't have to pay for it, it should be part of your training!
No, we're great because we're not broke!!
Thanks Jana!!! I loved reading You don't need a title to be a leader. People in high or low paying jobs can be awesome or miserable. It's a choice.
I recently read Mark Sanborn's story of a receptionist who called herself Intergallactic Empress and had a sign on her desk: Receptionistville. Population: 1. How cool is that??
Find out what your customer's level of expertise is and tailor your response to that. If not, they'll dislike feeling stupid.
What's your favorite sangria recipe? Just curious.
I'm going to go back and comment on posts for the past week to make up for lost time
On the other hand, you don't know their circumstances. Not to justify rudeness, but my guess is that it is not their dream job.
If they do, I don't want to know...
Picky! You know what I meant :)
