As 2008 Begins

Recently, I read this quote and thought it was the best way to express what I hope for you as 2008 begins.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.

Earl Nightingale
1921 – 1979
Radio Announcer, Author, and Speaker

When I researched who Earl Nightingale was, I learned that he was one of 12 survivors from USS Arizona at the bombing of Pearl Harbor. After the war, he worked in radio at KTAR in Phoenix. Then he moved to Chicago and became a radio legend.

Earl’s radio program Our Changing World became the most highly syndicated radio program ever. It was heard across the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, South Africa, the Bahamas, 23 countries overseas, and the Armed Forces Network.

Earl defined SUCCESS in terms of relationships and experiences.

Here’s to OUR SUCCESS in 2008!
