Just like the cost of completing items on one’s bucket list could be minor, so is the act of expressing profound gratitude. Doing it in an extraordinary way does not have to cost any significant expenditures of money.
Walter Green is the author of “This Is The Moment!” His reflections on life are penetrating and revealing. He makes one pause to think about the essence of life and how to make the world better. While his statements are profound, his questions are more so; he causes one to focus and take action.
Walter’s father died when he was a teenager and it left an indelible impression on him that life is short, precious, and unpredictable. Relationships throughout his life have been a central theme to his core. He has spent many years facilitating executive groups where the full range of key life issues was the focus. His readings also had him challenge the wisdom of why one waits until either their health is compromised to reach out to important relationships or worse yet, delivers a eulogy to express their regard and gratitude to those that have mattered.
Walter decided this IS the moment, for it was never too early and not too late to express his profound appreciation for those who had impacted his life. That is when Walter began his yearlong journey of seeking out those people who made a significant impact. It was the moment to share his gratitude with them.
Walter was Chairman of the Board and CEO of Harrison Conference Services for 25 years, during which time it grew into the leading conference center management company in the U.S. He has lectured at the Wharton Graduate School of Business and Hofstra and Long Island universities, as well as being featured as an expert on the topic of effective meetings in numerous national publications. Associated for years with the Young Presidents’ Organization and the World Presidents’ Organization, he’s presently a member of the Chief Executives Organization and the L3 Organization (Leadership, Legacy, Life). Since selling his company, he has mentored young adults and is actively involved in several nonprofit organizations. He lives with his wife, Lola, in San Diego, California.
