On October 3rd, Abraham Lincoln began his proclamation of an official day of thanksgiving…

“The year that is drawing towards its close has been filled with blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies.  To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.”

On November 22, two days before the 149th ‘official’ celebration of thanksgiving in the United States, I want to thank…you.

I want to thank you, as a safety, human performance, performance improvement professional, for…

  • Saving lives
  • Keeping people from getting hurt
  • Preventing physical and environmental catastrophe, and
  • Improving efficiency and profitability

It is an honor to be serving in a field which has as its objective to do so much good for so many.

Enjoy the holiday.  Enjoy your families.  And as you pause to be grateful for your many blessings, give thanks as well for your opportunity to be part of such noble pursuit.

In heartfelt gratitude,

-Tim

As gratitude is the parent of all virtue, our largest sense of it comes when we freely give.
