1. When someone you love, value, and need is missing from your life; your day is never quite the same. You miss them. You feel their absence from the most ordinary tasks and activities. When they return, make sure they know how much you missed them. 2. Everyone in a family, team, or organization has an important role to play. Help others find their place and make them feel valued in their work. 3. We are all searching for purpose in life. What’s important is that we are still asking the question! We haven’t lost sight of the need to have meaning and direction in our lives, especially when we feel like we’re not living up to our fullest potential. We need to keep asking the question. 4. Leaders need to lead by example. If we’re not exemplifying the lives we want to others to follow, why would anyone want to join in 5. The future doesn’t occur in the well planned, manicured spaces of our lives. It happens where the sidewalk ends.
