Congratulations on your long tenure! I enjoy reading your short reads each morning. It helps support my leadership mindset for the day. I also included one of your articles as reading material in our supervisor/manager training. Hopefully there will be some others from our organization that will become a daily reader. Thank you so much for your work.
Thank you Lynne. It’s a pleasure to be part of your journey. And thanks for sharing these posts with others.
Congratulations on all of the posts and the constructive longevity. I remember several of those and will be (re)reading all of the above. What a good refresher to start the week, end this year, and begin the next! I appreciate the daily cerebral pokes (jostling moments?) you offer that continually work to improve those humbled to be leaders. Have a safe and Happy New Year. Keep up the good work.
Thank J David. It’s an honor to have something you read be remembered. Happy New Year!
Congratulations Dan on helping us help ourselves. your daily insights are often prescient of my situation and give much to think about. I have been reading them for about 4 years now and appreciate your guidance and understanding of the human condition and look forward to many more. Thank you and Happy New Year.
Thanks PW. Four years! That’s a testament to grit! 🙂 Maybe you find value because I’m learning right along with people like you. Happy New Year
Congratulations, Dan! That is an amazing record. One of the things about your blog I appreciate is it’s consistency- you faithfully post every day. I also love the brevity, how you seem to strive to reduce the thoughts to something that is quick to read and grasp, often with references for people who want to dig deeper into the subject. I look forward to many more years of posts!
Thank you Glen. It’s my pleasure to know you and to be of service. Happy New Year to you and your family. (I could use some of that sun you all get. It’s dreary today in PA)
Dan, you are truly a “thought leader” in the world of business and life.
Your posts have been instrumental in helping me in my business and personally as a leader.
CONGRATULATIONS on your success and thank you for all you give.
To you and your family, have a safe and glorious New Year.
Thanks Bob. When I started this journey, I didn’t even know what “thought leader” meant. 🙂 It’s a pleasure to be thought of a thought leader by you. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of your journey. Happy New Year
Looking forward to what great incites you have for the next 10 years. Keep it going Dan.
