“Celebrate what you want to see more of.” – Tom Peters, author, In Search of Excellence
This is exactly what we are about at Big Oak Ridge; our “talking points” include Microeconomics, Locavoria, “Voting with your dollars”, Sustainability, Education, and Joi De Vivre! – all things we believe in strongly, and enjoy celebrating and sharing with others.
While we are willing to fight for things we believe in passionately, we also like to accentuate the positive – whether in the foods we eat, the activities we promote and participate in, the way we spend our money and our time, or the organizations and causes we support. There is still a lot of good, positive stuff happening out there!
I am reminded of this every time I visit the barn, and see our young goats leaping and doing back flips – just for the fun of it, I assume.
We can all learn a lot from goats. Think of something you can do that has no real purpose – something you can do just for the joy of doing it – and then go do it. Celebrate what you want to see more of!
