Even Rich People Have Bills by Terry W. Thompson.

The holiday season is upon us and stress levels are getting higher and higher. We have holiday commitments to family and friends, shopping for everyone (and we don’t want to forget anyone) at stores that are jammed packed full of people, parties to go to, a lot of driving on roads that are backed up for miles, and through it all we somehow maintain our sanity.

During these stressful times we need to learn how to relax and not let all these things get to us. Below are some holiday tips and activities that will help you get through the holidays by taking your mind off the things that are keeping you from having a happy holiday.

1. Call an old friend or family member you haven’t talked to in a while, share some old memories and wish them a happy holiday

2. Help someone you normally wouldn’t help with a project they need help with

3. Give a gift to someone in need

4. Do some volunteer work

5. Play a board game with your family

6. Lift a stranger up by wishing them a happy holiday

7. Partake in a random activity that you normally would not do or have been putting off

8. Pull out the musical instrument you have hiding in the closet and learn a holiday song

9. Make popcorn and enjoy a movie with the family

10. Be the picture taker and capture the moment of the holidays and watch as everyone smiles

These are just a few, and the list could go on and on. But it’s up to you to enjoy this holiday season. Anyone who has ever known me, knows that the most important “Right” is “Right attitude”. I hope that you all have the “Right attitude” this holiday season and may you find happiness in the smallest of things that will forever be a lasting memory, and if for some reason you cannot enjoy it, then remember, EVEN RICH PEOPLE HAVE BILLS ! ! ! LOL, Have a wonderful HOLIDAY.

Sincerely,

Terry W. Thompson

Daily Fuel from Leadertank.com:

I have often been asked what are my thoughts about leadership. When I think about leadership there are many things that come to mind, but only two stand out among the rest which are INFLUENCE and IMPACT.

If your INFLUENCE is not making an IMPACT then you need to re-evaluate, re-design, and re-engage your leadership tactics, techniques, and procedures.

HARMONY

Harmony makes sense out of something that is not strong enough by itself by uniting notes together in a beautiful symphony of sound. By uniting together and becoming one, we can all be in harmony and much stronger than a single note.  Join me in harmony and let’s make music that the whole world can hear and enjoy. Live in Harmony my friends.

A poem I just wrote. Hope it makes you SMILE ! ! !
 
When your heart is on your sleeve, and tears are falling down
My shoulder’s always there for you, to let it all hang out
Don’t be afraid to let me in, i’ll shelter you from this rain
A friend indeed for a friend in need, to help you heal the pain
 
From good times to bad times, we’ve all had our share of trials
But everlasting memories, are only made from smiles
So as you go about your lives, I hope that you will share
A smile or two or maybe three, and spread JOY everywhere
 
A poem by Terry W. Thompson

Are you a STAR?

Someone That Anyone Recognizes. Don’t hesitate to allow your talents to shine through. Are you easily recognized for your efforts and abilities within your organization?

If you are a STAR, then everyone knows your capabilities and will use them. Otherwise, you will just be tasked out with random things that are not in sync with your ability and capability. Work to your strengths and make yourself recognizable within your organization, make yourself a STAR.

There is nothing wrong with standing out in a particular area. Sure, every time that one or few things you are a STAR at needs to be done, everyone will come to you to get it done, but there is nothing wrong with being specialized in something.Let it be known that you are good at something and you will be a valuable asset to your team or organization. Be a STAR.

“Distractions are a must”

How often to you find yourself so involved in your work that all you can think about is what it takes to get it done and meeting your deadlines so you don’t make anyone mad or even get fired?

This can prove to be a very stressful situation. Sometimes, all you need is a small distraction. Distractions are a must if you want to refresh, reset, re-energize, and refocus your mind, body and spirit.

What are some things that you do to distract yourself for that quick moment you need to refresh, reset, re-energize, and refocus your mind, body and spirit so that you can get back in there and get things done again?
