I have to admit the first few times I watched Planters new Power of the Peanut videos, I just laughed. They instantly reminded me of every work seminar and networking brunch that I’ve ever been to. These seminars always include a lot of quick and easy quotes that are generic enough that they mold to anyone and everyones lives. When I was younger I used to think that their generic nature, meant they were not good advice or worth my time. The older I get the more I realize that those seminars were filled with generic goodies of thought, because we all sufferer though a lot of the same growing pains. We’ve all had a moment where we feel like our hard work is being overlooked. We’ve all wanted to take a chance and head out in a new direction. Moments where we wanted to put ourselves out there, but didn’t.
I only have two keys to Surviving and Thriving, the Business of Winning. Step one drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated throughout the day is a big deal. It’ can ward off those sluggish feelings that always creep up around 3 in the afternoon. Step two is snack well, this doesn’t meaning I’m giving up my big bowl of gummy bears or that I’m ditching my love of donuts with sprinkles. It just means that I’m focusing on snacks that taste good, and do a little good. The peanut is one of those snacks. Just look at all the great things a handful of peanuts can accomplish.
