Listen to October 10, 2015 Call Vance wrote in has email this week: Clarification is greatly needed during any season of change. When I look outside at the leaves on the trees, I know that in a few weeks the east wind is going to start blowing and those leaves will be on the ground ready for me to remove. While I thought I had all the Nikken changes figured out, I've come to discover that there were a few that needed clarification. I want to address these as well as share some ways that we're already implementing to totally embrace the exciting changes coming our way both in November and January.
Vance's Tip of the Week:
"October 9th, 2015
'Is this supposed to be fun?' (Hudson-age 5)
Volunteering in a Kindergarten leaves little room for boredom. Conducting math assessments with young people who are at the very beginning of their education is rewarding in ways that I cannot even describe.
I kept hearing Hudson's question in my mind while on the phone, texting, sending emails and during my appointments this week. If there was something that wasn't necessarily fun at first, then I'd find a way to make it fun.
Counting to a hundred may not be fun for a five year old and neither are a lot of the things that we get to do during our normal routine. If there's not a way to make it fun, then maybe we need to consider switching tasks or not do it at all. After all, one-third of our life is spent working so we might need to find a way to make it enjoyable. We don't need to be like the 15% of Americans that consider quitting their jobs every week."
