#116-1. People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -- that's why we recommend it daily.
#116-2. Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.
#116-3. Peace is not the absence of conflict in life but the ability to cope with it.
Regular attention to motivation is needed not only to your team but to yourself as well.
It helps me to remember the many meanings (all positive) of this powerful word, as in, praise (appreciation award), understanding (art appreciation), empathy (I appreciate your opposing viewpoint), increase in value (portfolio appreciation) and gratitude (they appreciated my presence in the event).
I can be at peace in the midst of a long struggle.
