Last month, I wrote to you about my 95/5 Creativity Rule, and it
inspired me and my team to get creative! We stretched our artistic
talent by painting together at the local futsol arena. We bought a
bunch of painting supplies, watched an instructional YouTube video
on the nearby TV, and started the fun but messy process of painting
a waterfall scene.

I learned my first lesson about creativity in second grade. Our
teacher was out that day, so we had a substitute, and she showed
the class a film about a doughnut factory.

Until a few months ago, my winter mountain biking routine had a
problem: It was missing the camaraderie of group rides.
During the spring, summer, and fall, I can ride side by side with
friends through the hills. But when the weather turns cold and snowy,
it’s not ideal to bike outdoors. I stay in shape by pedaling inside on
my old CompuTrainer, but there’s no nature to look at, and without
my friends, I feel less motivated. This winter I discovered a solution:
the online biking platform, Zwift.

It’s barely March, and I’ve already seen dozens of headlines about
spring-cleaning. Usually, these feature people obsessed with
organizing their closets and pantries. But you know what’s often
left out? Cleaning the backyard. That’s too bad because my own
backyard garden was the site of the biggest mess I’ve ever had to
clean up — even counting my clients’ legal problems.

When I was a small child, one of my favorite winter treats was a thick
slice of toast spread with homemade strawberry preserves. That jam
was a family project. Every summer during my preteen years, we
ventured out into the Washington state strawberry fields with visions
of canning jars dancing in our heads.

One of my favorite pieces of business advice comes from an unlikely place: the children’s book series “Little Bear” by Else Holmelund Minarik. That series was a childhood favorite of mine, and I particularly liked one captivating story of the bear cub’s adventures in the snow.

December is a month of temptations — and I don’t just mean the cookies! At this time of year, a lot of business owners fall into the trap of looking back at the past year and forward to the year ahead instead of living in the moment. Before they know it, the holidays are over and they’ve spent them “rehashing and rehearsing” instead of making new memories.

I saw my first live football game when I was 14 years old. I lived in Washington at the time, and my uncle had two tickets to a game between the University of Washington Huskies and the University of Oregon Ducks. At the last minute, he couldn’t make the game, so he offered them to me. My parents asked around until they found a family friend who could take me. I’m glad they did because it was one of the most memorable nights of my teenage years!

Do you remember Pipes and Pizza? Growing up in the ‘70s, it was one of my favorite restaurants in the Seattle area. The place was like a fantasy land. They served pizza, and had an organist playing on a platform raised above the tables. Bubbles emerged from the organ pipes along with every note! I’ll never forget the magic of chewing on a slice while organ music and shining bubbles drifted overhead.

Labor Day is just a week away as I write this, and for the last few days, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about my daily “labor” of coming into the office — including whom I labor with, and whom I labor for. During this reflection, the feeling that swelled up over and over was gratitude.
