September 2009


September is Big Brothers Big Sisters Month!

For over 80 years, the Big Brothers Big Sisters program has made a difference in the lives of young people by providing a friend where one is needed.

We are honored to work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg as a marketing partner, volunteer and supporter. 

Even though September is almost over, you can still get involved. If you don't think you have enough time to be a BIG, try out the In School Mentoring Program or one of the many other programs they run for children. 

You can make a BIG difference in the life of a child in only a couple hours a week!

- Good Grief   -
Charles Shultz (1922-2000) was a master cartoonist. He was also a man who knew what he wanted. His early comics were rejected time and again, but that didn't stop him from sticking with what he loved. Finally, on October 2, 1950, the Peanuts comic strip made its first appearance.

Now, this isn't a biography on Charles Shultz or the Peanuts strip but we can learn a few things by examining both.

Shultz's most famous strip was the one shown above. No matter how hard Charlie Brown tried, no matter how hard he focused on kicking the football - he never succeeded - landing flat on his back every single time.  Now, take another look at the strip. If you see it from a different perspective, Lucy has incredible focus. She knows exactly what she wants and succeeds time after time in her quest to humiliate poor ole' Charlie Brown with absolutely no remorse. 

And while this famous comic strip is fiction and has no factual or even symbolic basis, the success of Charles Shultz, and his focus on creating only one GREAT comic strip, is something we can take a lesson from.

FOCUS!  If you try to be all things to all people you'll end up not doing anything really well, but if you focus on what you do well and produce exceptional work, your efforts will not go unrewarded.  

Speaking of Focus, there's still time to register for the QNET Excellence Conference on, October 1st!


We had the pleasure of working with QNET for the third year in a row on the development of their Annual Conference materials and this year's theme is "Get Focused." 

The conference promises to be one of the best ever, with Keynote speaker, Dr. JP Pawliw-Fry, Leadership & Performance Expert. Click on the image above for more information and to register or call 949-4999.
