Thinking about Thanking: Bringing gratitude to the table
It’s that time again. If you live in the U.S. or are an American, chances are you will be one of about 88% who will be downing your portion of an estimated 46 million turkeys. Some will be partaking in the holiday but not of the bird, myself among them.
In 1621, the first Thanksgiving, held in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and hosted by a grateful Governor William Bradford, was to celebrate a good harvest. Ninety or so Native Americans, who undoubtedly contributed mightily to the bounty, attended. A good time was had by all.
Between then and now, we have amassed a great deal for which to be thankful. We enjoy a standard of living above that of most of the world. Our country is broad, bountiful and beautiful. Many less fortunate still see America as the Land of Opportunity, although many of us take that for granted.
Whether you are sitting around a Thanksgiving table tomorrow or a negotiating table the week after, I hope you take a moment to find gratitude in every activity you do or interaction you have. At times it may be challenging, but it is always there for you to find.I am grateful to each of you—clients, friends and business acquaintances—for the opportunities and learning experiences we have enjoyed together.
May your holiday be bountiful in every way.
