Wise Words: Anne Sweeney

I hope you had a great weekend! Did you watch the Golden Globes? What did you think? Just the other day, while scrolling through Instagram, I came across a new account that I really like called @beproductive. I’d say the timing was perfect with a new year upon us. I found this quote from Anne Sweeney on their account and it really resonated with me. Sometimes, it is easy to get caught up in what is going on with everyone around you, so I feel that this is an important philosophy to keep in mind as we forge our way through 2018. Happy Monday– let’s make it a great week!

  1. I cringed for the majority of the Golden Globes. Hollywood takes themselves way too seriously! I liked it better when I didn’t know the stars’ politics. Do we really care what these shallow people think?? It is no surprise that movies are crashing at the box office, just as NFL ratings are tanking. Thanks for focusing on the positive!!

  2. I loved all the quotes. In particular the quote “Leadership is a series of behaviors rather than a role for heroes”. I didn’t watch the Golden Globes but I got the gist of it. A few years ago I got disgusted with self-absorbed hollywood elites and their political views, so I don’t watch anymore. For decades they applauded and idolized Harvey Weinstein while covering up for him and his abusive behavior of women. What made it worse is, while they aided in his ability to abuse women, they were showcasing themselves in the political arena as advocates for women. Had their behaviors been in line with those of true leaders, they would be receiving a lot more respect now, instead of genuine disgust for the idea they could possibly think of themselves as any sort of hero as we charge into another political season. I don’t normally share my personal thoughts on such matters, but since you asked. . . Thank you for sharing your blog. I truly enjoy following.
