We’re made to embrace rhythms. We thrive on routines. We look forward to annual celebrations with family and friends. We love our Christmas music with its themes of nostalgia, hope, and love. Our American marketplace reflects our cultural rhythms, and we’re witnessing that once again during our Christmas and New Years holidays.
Other than retail, restaurants and entertainment, most non-essential business slows down to barely a perceptible pulse for the weeks that surround our most beloved annual celebrations devoted to our faith, our family and our friends. There is no other phenomenon like it on our calendars, and even our technology-driven, 24/7 mentality succumbs to Christmas’ mysterious power on our American culture.
I hope you’re surrounded by friends and family, somewhere and everywhere across this vast land of ours, enjoying your reprieve from the daily struggle. The American Surging Team is collectively resting and re-energizing itself by remembering and celebrating our ancient cultural heritage, and reinforcing why it is we’re willing to work so hard for most of the other 50 weeks of the year. After we’ve marveled at our Christmas displays, laughed, hugged, cried happy tears, acted alternately silly and extraordinarily generously, and then completed our celebration by raucously and publicly welcoming in a brand new year of hope and promise–only then will we be ready to again get back into the economic arena and pursue our bold company goals with a revived vigor. Even the scrooges and grinches among us must relent to the magnitude of our Christmas and New Years holiday rhythm.
BOLDbreak has one purpose, and that is to provide team leaders and company owners the tools and training they need, to develop an unstoppable Surging Team, a team that repeatedly succeeds in achieving difficult and important company objectives. When teams win, increased company profitability follows! Contact me after our joyous and hopeful national celebrations, and let’s discuss the actions that you as the team leader or company owner need to take in order to lead your team to success in the coming new year.
Until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
