Of all the buildings in Texas my favorite has to be the Alamo. You can feel the pain that happened there.
Even the walls look like they are crying.There is something cathartic about walking through the historic building. I can just hand over my worries to the building.
Then after you thoughts are cleansed you go outside into the courtyard. As you walk around the asphalt paths there are soda machines tucked back by the bathrooms. They make me smile.
We can’t help but infuse modern living into museums. It’s who we are.
There was someone that thought this was a good idea. It was voted on and now we have soda machines to quench people’s thirst as they walk the grounds.
I’m not sure it this is good or bad, but how cool would it be if there was an area to buy a drink that mimicked the experience of what it would have been like to buy a drink over 100 years ago?
Employees that worked the 100 Year Old Bar could be dressed similarly. There could be old style music. I’m not sure what they drank back then, but they could add modern drinks and flavors like Coke, but keep everything else feeling like it would a have been ordering from a bar at that time. Yes, this would cost more, but I know it would generate more money for them. It would be a memorable experience. One I would pay for again and again.
The idea is to get visitors to talk about the story of the Alamo with my friends. The only way to do this is to do something new. Something I haven’t seen before. Something worth sharing.
Yes it might be more challenging for the organization that runs the Alamo, but it could also send thousands of more people there each month.
New challenges help us become healthier. It slows down your cognitive decline and helps you work with purpose.
I want to create a better experience for you at Work Happy Now, so I decided to do something new.
As I work to infuse more ways for you to bring more happiness to your career and life I’ve decided to create a podcast.
I want to make it special. I want to make the experience fun, learning, and authentic. Something for you to download to your phone or other device so you can listen on the way to work.
So I’m hoping to get feedback from you.
Are you a fan of podcasting?
Then fill out this short survey and let me know how I can help you infuse more passion, improve your focus, and leverage your strengths at work.
P.S. If you don’t listen to podcast or don’t like audio books then no worries. I’m going to continue to write articles to help you too. If you do like audio then fill out the short survey and let me know how I can help you better.

Starting something new is often a great way to do some refreshing work. Like you mentioned, playing to your strengths and learning more about yourself is a surefire way of learning how to add value to both your career and your life. I think building your vision resume is a great way to have a tangible conversation about goals with people that have supported you in your life!
Hi Kevin! I love the idea of a vision resume. It would really help put things into perspective.
Another take on the vision resume is the dream board. My wife and I started using one in our home to keep what is important directly in front of us. It also opens up a line of communication when one of us places a new "dream" on the board. This idea came from other thought leaders in the happiness movement.
Thank you Karl for what you are doing.
