The Friday Focus
November 14, 2014
Veteran's Day was a huge success this week. It felt really great to thank our Veterans and it was incredible that each of the 22 of them was somehow connected to Ben Franklin.
In fact, two of the most important words that we can use are "Thank You."
Rather than take the time to read a message from me this week, I have a challenge for you: stand up and find someone who has helped you or motivated you recently at Ben Franklin. Don't call or email; go see them, and simply say "THANK YOU."
Try to thank three people today who have made a difference for you recently. It costs nothing, but means so much. It is a fantastic way to make someone's day.
