A week of gratitude

The Thanksgiving Reader

Seth Godin is proposing a new Thanksgiving tradition. He's put together this reader with the hopes that people at holiday gatherings all over will read the same words about gratitude aloud. We think it's a great idea. (In case you missed it, here's a link to our recent blog post on gratitude in the workplace.)

Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday. And thank you for reading The Coffey Blog.
