One of the things I love most about working with business owners and leaders is their ability to problem solve and innovate.
I remember feeling so constricted when I worked for the government. It seemed like everything needed a committee and no-one on the committee would commit to a decision, just in case they would be held responsible.
In private enterprise it is just the opposite. I remember my former boss telling me to “Lose that piece of paper that you cover your arse with; you’re not in the Government now”. Today we might question the political correctness of the statement, however his advice served me well.
I did lose the piece of paper and I did learn to take responsibility and make decisions.
I found other ways to get things done.
Which brings me to Christmas.
There are no excuses. It’s nobody else’s fault. I am responsible. I did not organise myself to send cards; even though I think of people and want them to know how much I value them.
I didn’t organise gifts, even though I would often envision a gift that would be well received.
So I asked myself, the universe and the Committee of Sleep, “How can I express my gratitude and appreciation and wish everyone in my community a wonderful Christmas and New Year?”
The answer – a video message.
And here it is. My Christmas wishes to you and your family.

Thank you for being on this journey with me. I appreciate you and I can’t wait to see what 2019 brings for all of us.
