What’s for breakfast?

When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”

Yesterday was an exciting day.   We had all of our staff in “the house” for an all-team meeting.  We also had a great breakfast and lunch!  Having everyone (with the exception of Lori who was missed!) together for the day is truly energizing.  Coming together provides a time to recharge, communicate, support, generate ideas, encourage, acknowledge and get focused on what is ahead.   Whew — we did all that!   

Reconfirming our road map provides an opportunity to see where we have traveled and where we want to go next. What I can tell you is that I am so proud of the team we have an NCCF — each person is passionate about our mission, is focused on excellence and is engaged in our future.  Yesterday provided an opportunity to say thank you, to get focused and plan our trip! 

Exciting indeed.
