I have two bottles of perfume: Clinique’s Happy and Philosophy’s Amazing Grace. I consciously pick the scent for the day – whether I need to look for ways to provide a bit of extra grace or whether am I approaching the day to spread some joy. It’s an easy way to start the day off with intentionality.

From the Amazing Grace package:

How you climb the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain.
And, so it is with life, which for many of us becomes one big gigantic test followed by one big gigantic lesson.
In the end, it all comes down to one word. Grace.
It’s how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light.

May you intentionally spread happiness and grace today — whether you are climbing up or down.


About the Author leadership dots by dr. beth triplett

I'm the chief connector at leadership dots where I serve as "the string" for individuals and organizations. Like stringing pearls together to make a necklace, "being the string" is an intentional way of thinking and behaving – making linkages between things that otherwise appear random or unconnected – whether that be supervising a staff, completing a dissertation or advancing a project in the workplace. I share daily leadership dots on my blog to provide examples of “the string” in action. I use the string philosophy through coaching, consulting and teaching to help others build capacity in themselves and their organizations. I craft analogies and metaphors that help people comprehend complex topics and understand their role in the system. My favorite work involves helping those new to supervision or newly promoted supervisors build confidence and learn the skills necessary to effectively lead their team.
