Here in US, we celebrated Thanksgiving last Thursday. This is a tradition that has grown out of its religious infancy into a truly secular holiday – families & friends come together and over a sumptuous meal, thank whichever gods they believe in or if they don’t believe in any god, just thank their luck or each other for the good times spent in the year that just passed.
We did so, too, with our daughter and son-in-law!
Giving thanks, in my opinion, is one of the most important aspects of entrepreneurship! No entrepreneur can dream to succeed on his or her own. I am not surprised to see several entrepreneurs who wonder why they need to go out of their way to thank anyone at all. Of course, no solider works pro bono, only revolutionaries do. But, it is this precise act of Thanksgiving that can elevate an ordinary soldier into a passionate revolutionary!
In fact, for a true entrepreneur, everyday should be a Thanksgiving day!
