Extra Points: Celebrating Labor Day

In the United States, we are very fortunate when it comes to labor. For many, if not most, on this planet, “labor” involves finding food and clean water; avoiding disease and destruction; and simply surviving another day.
It’s easy to take our labor for granted. To that end, you are encouraged to consider these points:
  • If you’re reading this, you have the ability and opportunity to do what you want for a career. You are not stuck doing something you hate unless it’s by your own free will.
  • If you’re a W-2 employee, never think of yourself that way. You have your own small corporation (whether it be just you or your family) of which you are CEO. Make sure you have a passion for your work and are being remunerated for your talent.
  • If you’re a CEO or entrepreneur, you are in the noble position of employing good people and allowing them to take care of families and be active community members.
  • In addition, you get to choose your own path; you’re own destiny. That’s not common in the world. Take advantage of it.
Celebrate Labor Day because you – WE – are so fortunate to be in a position to love what we do, create labor opportunities for others, carve out our own path, and fulfill dreams that others around the world can’t comprehend. So while you’re enjoying a day off with your loved ones and friends, remember that the next day, you’ll back at it with hopefully a little extra zip in your stride!
Happy Labor Day and Be Unleashed!

  1. Good Morning Dan!

    Nice message. Gratitude and perspective. I listened to a TED Talk the other day given by a young lady who had escaped from N. Korea as a teen. Wow. If that kind of story does not make one stop and re-evaluate, I am not sure what would.

    Hope all is well.
