“We learned new ways to connect”

Imagine8’s Norman Thompson on opportunities and challenges and why you should ask ‘are things happening to us or for us’?

Now that we’re at the half time mark in 2022, asks a selection of licensees if the year is panning out as they anticipated in terms of opportunities and challenges, and what is the one thing they would like to achieve by the time we reach the all-important Q4 period.

Today: Norman Thompson, md, Imagine8.

“The year is panning out better than expected, and I would like to believe the reason is because of a simple choice. When faced with all the uncertainty through the pandemic, my heart reminded me that life is precious, that we are not invincible. We learned new ways to connect, do business, collaborate, learn, serve, spend with our families and lead fulfilling lives.

Choose to be kind, do something that makes you happy, is good for you and good for others.

There are always opportunities and challenges; what are you focused on, and are things happening to us or for us? When choosing to be kind, like attracts like, partner with people you like, take care of each other, be grateful and have fun along the way. Kindness, friendship and collaboration are my wishes for you all.”
