(A note from Craig)
I received a note from Team Kids CEO, Julie Hudash, that brought such joy to me that I had to share. A week ago I had presented Julie with a small gift in celebration of our new collaboration that we are undertaking with the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity and Team Kids.
Her note is listed here:
It's been a few very busy weeks, with back to back programs, and most of my
time invested in what I love most, working with kids.
about 6:30AM and still kinda dark. I sat at my desk feeling overwhelmed
and decided to tackle a few of the less time consuming things on my list
first… to build momentum, you know…
that my usual optimistic, can-do attitude, was somehow still asleep in my
myself, I smiled and actually laughed to myself. I thought, hey my staff isn't
here yet, but here I am with Bugs Bunny… and he's working TOO!
sense of relief and this message "do the work, but
remember not to take this too seriously…"
suddenly I realized that all tasks on my list aren't things unrelated to the
"fun part of my job", I realized that this is just part of the
gig to help reach more
thanks Craig for adding exponential inspiration and joy to my
not to take anything TOO seriously…
I so enjoyed reading this and Julie's thought about not taking it too seriously amazed me and I sent her back Chuck's quote:
“The rules are simple. Take your work, but never
yourself, seriously. Pour in the love and whatever skill you have, and it will
come out.”~Chuck Jones
Julie replied with:
What an incredible gift, which I wholeheartedly and passionately
I am confident that this message came to me loud and clear. this morning…
because I so desperately needed it 😉
I hope Bugs Bunny and Chuck's other characters can continue to bring joy and inspiration to each and every person who hears their wonderful messages to smile and laugh every day!
