It's Labor Day!

It’s Labor Day!

A celebration of American workers. President Grover Cleveland signed it into law, in June 1894, after years of labor strikes and unrest. According to, at the height of the industrial revolution, “the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks”.

As I read this article, my first impression was that work hasn’t changed much since 1894. We Americans work very hard and often very long hours. Even during the pandemic while working from home, we work many hours. Think about moms, they don’t have a “job”, but they work harder than anybody!

On this Labor Day, let’s remember to give ourselves a rest, or enjoy time with our families, or do something that we love. Let’s celebrate our own selves and our work achievements.


The Great Resignation.

If you haven’t heard of The Great Resignation, according to this article, 11.5 million workers have quit their jobs in during April, May, and June of 2021. When so many of us are working longer hours and doing it during a deadly pandemic, it seems it was almost inevitable that many people left their jobs.

What The Great Resignation is at the core, change. Since March 2020 we have seen huge changes in the way we work, and in who we work for. We have adapted to all the changes and it’s important that we give ourselves credit for making the changes or rolling with the changes as they were presented to us.

We can’t know if we are in the beginning, middle, or end of the big changes, and that’s okay. We can continue to do our best, do what’s right for us and our families.


Change is Hard.

It’s true, change is hard, and in change, there is also opportunity. There is opportunity to reshape our lives, to shift our priorities, to make our work lives work better for us. There is opportunity to reshape how companies treat their employees. There is opportunity to reshape how leaders lead. There is so much opportunity all this change. Let’s use this energy to our own advantage.

Labor Day is interesting this year. Let’s rest, enjoy time with our families, spend time doing what we love.
