Do One Thing Every Day that Scares You

This famous Eleanor Roosevelt quote resonates with me. It doesn’t mean you have to do something to risk your life every single day – it could be something as small as trying a new food or talking to somebody who intimidates you. Or, letting your guard down, getting silly, and giving improv training a whirl.

Maybe you’re shy, and can’t even fathom yourself getting up in front of all of your coworkers acting like a goofball. It’s out of your comfort zone. But that’s the point! Plus, as famous comedian Amy Poehler says: no one looks stupid when they’re having fun. Improv training can help you discover hidden talents and allow others to see what you’re capable of. This can be carried directly back to the workplace.

You have no idea what you might learn until you try it. Improv is fun! Don’t be shy – “do one thing every day that scares you” and take a chance on something new.

How to Honor and Celebrate Memorial Day

Memorial Day has a different meaning for everyone. Oftentimes, people use this day as a celebration for the arrival of summer. Cookouts, family reunions, and a 3-day-weekend are all a blast but they can take away the importance of what the day truly signifies. While you celebrate good food and loved ones, don’t forget to honor and celebrate the brave men and women who have died fighting for our country.
