Message from Dwight  

In my day to day, I don't practice gratitude as much as I should. There is at least a small amount of wonder to be found in my everyday life. Admittedly, I often pass it by without a thought. 

Perhaps that is why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It is a day to gather with my loved ones and take stock of all I have to be thankful for. The list is long: family, health, friends, colleagues, each of you. During my normal course of living, if I focus on scarcity, I never have enough. But if I focus on abundance, I find I have far more than I have ever deserved. 

As I enter the holiday season, I am grateful, and I am committed to remaining grateful. I will pause when I find that small amount of wonder in my everyday life. And as I start to look for that wonder, I already know I will find far more than a small amount. 

What are you grateful for?

How Being Thankful Will Make You More Profitable
By Don Yaeger

I’ve never understood why there is just one day called Thanksgiving. What if we were committed to being THANKFUL every day? Imagine what our lives–and our workplaces–would look like.

My guess is that if we all expressed gratitude more regularly that we would all be happier. I know there are scientific studies out there that make this point. One of the hottest topics in sports and business is employee happiness. Research shows that the higher a company’s employee engagement, the better the work output—which means a more successful company. So it literally paysto have a happy team.

I had a chance to interview Jenn Lim, CEO of Delivering Happiness—a science-based firm that promotes happiness, passion and purpose at work—for a book I’m working on about the habits of great teams. Lim’s expertise fascinated me so much that I used her “happiness survey” in my own company to determine where we stood on employee engagement.

Her lessons (and my insights) were.....
