Those of you who have gotten to know me know that I am a big Red Sox fan and that my passion for the Sox has been passed on to my now teenage son. Over the years we have shared many great moments together around the baseball diamond. One moment I will never forget occurred as the Fenway Park groundskeeping crew was preparing for a rain delay. I brought my then 8 year old over to “canvas alley” to watch the crew cover the field. As I explained the job, he looked up at me in amazement. “You mean they actually get paid to work at Fenway Park?” His little mind couldn’t comprehend that people would not want to volunteer at Fenway Park for free every day.
When I recall this learning moment for my son, I know that it is also a reminder for me. When you are lucky enough to do something each day that you feel passionately about, it transforms from simply being work, to being something that can engage you and amaze you. I am truly grateful for the opportunity I have to help my clients each and every day. I recommit to doing all that I can to maintain “the beginner’s mind,” and wonder at the possibilities. Happy New Year.
