My first post and welcome! (be a leader today)
I debated about what I should post as my first blog entry ever and since first impressions are everything, it was a tough decision.
I decided to add a photo I took at the Perdido Pitcher Plant Prairie State Park. It spoke volumes to me because it is a single tree that is located near at the end of the dock in the water away from the rest of the trees. One might consider this tree an outsider, a lucky tree, or maybe a tree leader? What ever kind of tree it is, I believe it is important to notice that in order to be the best, you have to strive to be ahead of everyone else, but that does not mean by a lot. Just like the tree is only so many feet away from the rest, you only have to be that one step ahead of someone or something. When I took the picture at a different angle (also attached here) that tree is the only tree visible near the dock. It is a beautiful spectacle during sun down. Everyone should strive to be that tree in whatever they do. Be it a leader, manager, employee, student, teacher, team player, mom, dad, or child. What ever you are today, try to be someone’s special tree out away from everyone and everything else, yet within reach.
Anyway, it is a piece worth pondering over…
I am Vera and let’s get up and stretch, honestly, we sit at the desk for way too long ;)
