2016 has had its share of challenges, starting with the loss of Bowie, continued war and surges of refugees, more than one divisive election, and, now it seems Jay-Z isn’t calling Kanye. (Forgive me for the jest, but we need a little levity sometimes.) We also need to step back and take a moment to look at the good in the world.
Many great things occurred in 2016 for which we can be thankful. We all cheered for the Refugee team at the Olympics, proving that the journey is more important than the destination. We were awed by applications of virtual reality to help patients manage pain and anxiety. The Cubs taught us if you keep your head down, focus on your work, and recruit the right team, you can achieve your goals. Don’t forget Pokemon, Go! (Ok…that one might generate a mixed response.)
At LRW, we are especially thankful to work for some of the coolest brands on the planet with smart and caring clients, colleagues and business partners. We are grateful for people all around the globe that share their thoughts and opinions with us in so many different ways. We love collaborating with you in trying to make an impact on our world.
To our American friends, we hope you and your loved ones have a Happy Thanksgiving… and a fun and safe Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. For our friends around the globe, we send good wishes to you, too.
(Editor’s note: Our list of good things is short…on purpose. Help us out, please. Let us know what are you thankful for.)
