Behind the scenes.... on installation day.
We mostly share the shiny, beautiful, photoshopped version of our accomplishments - well to get there - we go thru this phase first.
While installing these tiles we discovered that the cafe next door has their dishwashers on the other side of this wall - extra support and tape still didn’t prevent a few oops.
Staying calm and focused was the key to successfully completing the task (minus the four that fell off) .
Lesson learned - check out what’s on the other side of your wall before choosing your location for a donor tile wall.
Starting the year with a team bonding experience for your staff can really set the tone for a more collaborative, lively, energetic work place - add in a charitable component and the goodness is even greater.
A few weeks ago I led 90 employees of Novartis engaged in an art making session at their year end meeting. Their efforts were transformed intro 4 tile tables that are being donated this week to 2 charities. Stay tuned to see more.....
Oh and the people on cell phones are not slacking off - they are using them to find images for inspiration
"I bid farewell to LUMS last year; probably one of the hardest goodbyes. Funny enough, however, I did not have the most amazing start to my time at LUMS. In fact, if I were to put it, I can recall a lot of disappointment and frustration - all that LUMS hype and excitement practically ended with Orientation week and here I was in my first Calculus class surrounded by brainiacs from across the country. Suddenly, I was no longer the girl with the perfect grades; I was no longer at the top of my class - I had become what they call “average” (shudders). Being a day-scholar was another problem in its own as I struggled to maintain a balance between college and life at home (being the eldest isn’t all fun and glory, you see, especially when parents like mine have high expectations from you).
My apologies for starting off with all that whining in fact, because, honestly, I like to describe myself as a chirpy, happy person – not trying to sound cocky, mind you. Although life is not majestic and joyful all the time – it certainly isn’t sad or depressing either. These so-called challenges and troubles are only short-lived and are meant to polish you into that brilliant, strong and confident individual who dwells not too deep within you and I.
To all the undergrads out there, just don’t procrastinate – you really don’t have much time to procrastinate on, tbh. These 4 years will flow by faster than you might think. Life, as beautiful and spontaneous as it is does not throw a lot chances, so capitalize upon the ones you are lucky to get: join societies, read, cycle around campus at 4am, make new friends, get to know your amazing instructors, go to the swings near the faculty apartments – God, the list is endless.
At the end, as cliché as it may sound, we must make the most of our time and cherish the small moments in our lives, or like this Stories Series has been urging us, let's 'Stonos the moment' so that when we get busy with our lives and then suddenly catch a glimpse of this tile hanging on our wall with all our old friends posing for the camera with their wide stupid grins all hyped up for that Blue Day, we will truly feel blessed and loved!"

Remembering this super fun Team Building Event with Four Seasons Produce - one year ago.⠀
15 Teams working together to create a mural that embodied core values of Four Seasons Produce and their work together as a team.⠀
They now have beautiful murals hanging in their state of the art cafeteria for all employees to see and remember their time together getting creative.⠀
A great celebration for a great company. Click in the link in our bio to see more.
