ProdPod: Episode 24 — Thanksgiving and Interdependence

Reading Time (est.): 1

Every Thanksgiving, I’m reminded about all the wonderful people in my life as my greatest blessing. In our modern, global society, though, it’s easy to take many of these important people for granted the rest of the year.


Every Thanksgiving, I’m reminded about all the wonderful people in my life as my greatest blessing. In our modern, global society, though, it’s easy to take many things for granted the rest of the year. As way of example, when’s the last time you’ve harvested your own fresh produce or livestock for your family? Even with our deeply interdependent lives, we aren’t given many opportunities to highlight the unsung heroes and unseen everyday people who work behind the scenes to make sure our lives are productive.


Interdependence will forever remind me of the words of Dr. Stephen Covey from his 1989 book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.
<QUOTE> Independent thinking alone is not suited to interdependent reality. Independent people who do not have the maturity to think and act interdependently may be good individual producers, but they won’t be good leaders or team players. They’re not coming from the paradigm of interdependence necessary to succeed in marriage, family, or organizational reality.<END QUOTE>
I bid you to be thankful for the great blessing of a productive, interdependent life during this and every Thanksgiving!
