Miller’s Monday Morning Message

Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between
Toronto – December 23, 2013
Toronto was hit with an ice storm this week that knocked out power for about 300,000 homes, including those my neighbourhood, which lost power for about 24 hours. Trees were strewn all over the roads, driving was treacherous, and flights were delayed. But the prevailing sentiment in my neighbourhood was one of calm and happiness.
Since we had no power, families packed quickly and started driving vacations early or to search for the nearest relative with power. Neighbours helped each other move fallen branches from roads and driveways. People were still out walking dogs and exercising. We all felt that this was a beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime experience. So instead of complaining, we all decided to make the best of it.
How do you approach what life throws at you? Do you embrace the change and make the best of it, or do you get angry and play the victim?
This holiday season is a good time to reflect on those questions.
Merry Christmas. Happy holidays. And I wish you a happy and healthy new year.
