Living our thanks

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963);
35th Us President

As we take some time off to remember the things we are thankful for, I find that this quote by President John F. Kennedy is a useful reminder. As a leader within higher education, I have much to appreciate:

  • Challenging work
  • Stimulating colleagues
  • Collaborative partnerships
  • A chance to make a difference

I plan to come back to work refreshed and ready to behave as if I appreciate my colleagues and the work we are doing together.

What would be on your appreciation list?
