Point to Ponder
I challenge you to Ponder the reason behind the season and to allow your life to be a gift to all you encounter this next year.
May 2012 be your most profitable year yet, in friendships, in business and in making a difference by being you.

Archives of past issues of Ideas @ Work! are available on our www.ideaman.net website.
We will be adding archives of Bob's Mid-month Musings as well.

Christmas is a time for reflection, recreation, and re-connection.
Christmas is also a time to spend with family, friends, and colleagues as well as a time to share gifts.
As I reflect on the year just winding down I am reminded of some of the some of the more valuable gifts I have enjoyed...
The gift of trust with my clients across the globe.

The gift of friendship and support from my colleagues, friends and family.

The continued gift of a patient, loving woman to share it with.
The gift of being surprised in Toronto with The Spirit of CAPS award for 2011.
And, most importantly, the gift of each of you being a part of my life and my business.

To each of you I wish the very best of Christmas wishes. May your hearts be overflowing with joy and gratitude for those who care. May you be comforted for those you have lost. May you and your families be blessed and enjoy your time together. May you and you co-workers or employees see this next year be a prosperous one for all.
See you next year.
