President's Message Brett
January 2019
By
Brett Thomas- IAHU President 

 

Did you know that the first step in constructing a bridge over the Niagara Falls Gorge was made by a 15-year-old American named Homan Walsh. In 1848, Homan flew a kite he named Union from one side of the gorge to the other. Someone on the opposite side caught the kite and tied a stronger string to the end of the kite string, and Homan pulled the new, thicker string back across the gorge. The process was repeated with an even stronger string, then a cord, then a thin rope, then a thicker rope, and eventually a steel cable, which crossed the expanse and was strong enough to support workers, tools, and materials. Finally, a sturdy bridge, over which trains and trucks could easily pass, was completed. And it all began with a kite and string.

A new year brings new resolutions. We all make them, but few keep them. You’ve probably seen the activity level at your local gym spike in January only to decline dramatically by March or April. In fact, according to U.S. News, approximately 80% of resolutions fail by the second week of February.

Making a New Year’s resolution is like trying to build a bridge across the Niagara Gorge. It’s a daunting task to tackle 365 days of habit forming in one sitting. Perhaps we should begin with a kite and string. Consider this: our bodies are designed in such a way that after 16 hours of activity we require approximately 8 hours of sleep. During this period of semi-unconsciousness – the sun sets and rises again – bringing a new day. It’s truly life’s way of offering us a re-boot. Isn’t it remarkable? We take it for granted far too often.

My message this month is to encourage a focus on the small things. Make those seemingly insignificant changes to our lives, our businesses, our relationships, and do it today. If we fail today – don’t sweat it – just give it another go tomorrow. But - by all means - don’t give up, and don’t wait until 2020 to try again. One of my favorite sayings comes from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do, not that the nature of the thing has changed but that our power to do has increased.”

As you contemplate what changes you’d like to make to become a better insurance professional, consider attending Capital Conference or the NAHU National Conference this year. It’s a small step that can help you see a bigger picture of our industry. In an effort to assist those who’ve never attended, the IAHU Board of Trustees has just approved a new First-Time Conference Attendee Scholarship Fund. This fund will provide a $500 reimbursement for a NAHU member from our state to attend a national convention for the first time. Capital Conference is just around the corner so please contact Wendy Leatham or me for additional details.

Here’s to a successful 2019!
