Brian Braudis’ 1-Minute Morning Memo: April 25, 2016 – Today’s focus: Earth Day

The promise of Earth Day—a Better Earth, cleaner, healthier and safer planet for our children and grand children, everyone who may come after us is not limited to the outdoors.

Leaders must adopt a larger perspective and accept responsibility for improving the whole planet indoors as well as the outdoors.

A Better Earth

Even if we had nothing to do with creating it we must shift our thinking and take responsibility not so much for the problem or issue but responsibility for our actions to lead in a better direction, a higher view.

The medical field has adopted the guiding principle, “First, Do No Harm.” Which is intended to mean the first priority is patient well-being. Earth Day reminds us it is all of our responsibility to “Do Some Good.” It doesn’t matter where you find yourself—amongst steel, cement and carpet is as good as a beach sweep. The point is to spread good works.

Cleaner, Healthier and Safer Are In Your Hands

Imagine if smiles, kind words, and reassurance that all is well and YOU are well permeated our planet and you had something to do it? As leaders, we have a responsibility to build and spread positive and productive momentum.

The fact is we are responsible for the only planet in the universe where life is known to exist. Let’s accept this responsibility with the intention to cultivate a cleaner, healthier safer life-giving planet.

Leaders make things happen so followers can get things done. Let’s make this happen.
