Thought-full Thursday: Giving and Taking


Every Thursday, we provide you with a thoughtful way to coach yourself – something all leaders need to do. So take five and enjoy the inspirational quotes and reflect on the questions that follow. Your comments and answers to the questions are most welcome!

Today’s Thoughtful Thursday is dedicated to the sacrifices made by our armed services personnel and their families.

Blessed are those who give without remembering. And blessed are those who take without forgetting. ~Bernard Meltzer

  • What are you giving without remembering?
  • What are you taking without forgetting?
  • Who is in need of your giving without remembering?
  • What will it take for you to habitually express gratitude?
