  • How does it work?

Appreciate literally means ‘to increase the value of.’ If I appreciate what I have in my life, I am literally increasing its value to me as I notice and acknowledge their presence in my life.”― Jullien Gordon

I do not claim to be a thought leader on all of these subjects, but I am a thought breeder. My favorite part of doing these podcasts is participating in the conversation they breed. Each week, I ask one question. Share your answer on , , or .

This Week’s Challenge

Think about your favorite dish, and take your time appreciating every ingredient, person, and process that goes into delivering it to you. Take time to mentally thank every person who helped get it to you, each ingredient required, the business created to deliver your dish, and the farmers who helped grow the ingredients.

When you think about your $15 meal this way (I love salmon burgers), it’s very powerful. Because here got something for $15, and you see all of the hands that went forth to bring this to you.
