Summary

The Brink is a method for generating leadership in an individual leader and on a team. It is based on the simple assertion that leadership is created in the face of some great challenge or obstacle to overcome, rather than in a vacuum or in comfortable places with no adversity. The Brink model uses climbing a mountain as an analogy throughout for creating that big challenge or goal, and then demonstrates how to create a team to climb it with and outlines the way to create leadership in everyone involved in the process. This metaphor transfers to virtually any leadership position one holds and is organized into a clear list of ingredients essential to leadership.

    From Harvard classrooms to your grandma's kitchen table—everybody is getting on the look on the brightside bandwagon. If you need to know, there's a ton of medical research to back it up, but people who appreciate where their bread is buttered and how sweet the jam on their toast is—well they're healthier, they live longer, they're usually more successful—although they may not define success as having the most marbles, and for sure other people want to spend more time around them. Addie Johnson calls Life Is Sweet her scrapbook, in which she’s gathered stories that struck her—things that made her happy in the seeing or experience and in the remembering. And bits she’s read. And quotes. People, stories, kids and animals, stuff/no stuff (aka all or nothing), achievements achieved and unpleasant tasks done, laughing (snickering, giggling, guffawing, wetting your pants) health or progress toward it-—all are fodder for happiness. Life is sweet and creamy—yes your life and yours and yours and yours--if you just look at what's in front of your face.

    Celebrate the moms in your life (and perhaps yourself as well)! After all they've done for us, moms everywhere deserve to be appreciated on a daily basis, rather than waiting all year to get a card and some flowers. Think back on the many things, big and small, your mother has done for you over the years . . . from baking cookies or sometimes letting you choose the radio station on a car trip, to hemming your dress in time for the prom. Isn’t it time you started making those same gestures in the other direction? We think so! It is never too early, or for that matter, too late, to make a parent feel special. Mother’s Day has a long and storied history, stretching back to its earliest roots in the post-Civil War era. What began as one woman’s attempt to help heal the grief of mothers who’d lost sons on both sides of the fight and then became another woman’s attempt to honor her own mother, has morphed over the years into more of a commercial event. Isn’t it time we got back to the idea of making moms feel treasured and appreciated? In these pages, you’ll find idea after idea that will encompass a wide variety of activities to get you thinking about how to make your mom feel special, even if you don’t live close by. Go ahead and remember to buy that card and bring over some flowers on the actual Mother’s Day, but in the meantime, here are some ways to make every day count . . .
