Better Than Santa Claus…


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!

As I think about my life growing up, I loved Christmas because, well, we would get presents! And as a kid, that was a really cool thing.

Be Present with Others

As an adult though, I’ve learned that there’s something even better than receiving presents and that is being present for other people.

Being there with them. Listening to them. Hearing what’s going on in their lives. Finding ways to help them!

That is the great opportunity!

So as you begin this holiday season, think about how you could be more present to those that you love—to those that you love at work. And let’s face it, we do get to love the people we work with because we often spend more time with them than we do with our own families.

Learning to be present with others brings great power. Let’s give it a try.

Merry Christmas to you.

  1. Terrific message– to be “present” for others.
    Probably the #1 attribute for physicians to effectively care for their teams and their patients. One can’t do much good for others unless one is really “there” for them.
    Otherwise, it’s all a contrivance/charade.
    And, indeed, Thank God it’s Monday. No question, the best day of the week.
