The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one August 17-19, 2012. Have some good news this week? Put it in the Brag Basket.

Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others. Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
What can you do in the Brag Basket?
- introduce yourself
- share some great news from this week
- congratulate a friend
- laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
- applaud for each other
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.
How does it work? You write a comment on this post. We all cheer, and everyone feels great.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

I love your BragBasket concept. I think I’ll just leave it at this for now – evidence may have revealed over the past few says an increase in my sanity ratings.
Thanks for “being there” – out standing in your field.
This is Mary. I am a freelance ghostwriter and copywriter. I reached the halfway mark in writing my client’s new book. It has been a series of ups and downs, but I’ve finally hit my stride. The project is fun. That is a huge win.
Looking forward to reading about others’ grand adventures!
Mary, as someone who sometimes struggles to reach the halfway mark in writing a blog post, let me say, “Congrats!” Sounds like an even better accomplishment since you’re having fun on the project.

It warms my heart to come in and find a party going in the Brag Basket.
Wayne, glad to know you’re feeling more sane!
Mary, congratulations on hitting your stride!
Nick, thanks for cheering others on!

I have finally gotten back in charge of my daily agenda, with the help of some great planning sheets from Charlie Gilkey (Free, too!) and although I haven’t completed all of my tasks I do know that I have been trying to get too much done.
Repeat after me: “Start Less in order to Finish More!”

Are pharmaceutical drugs a rip off? Are they out to addict us to their products? How much profit do they really make? What does it cost to take a drug to market?

Again, I love this concept! 2 weeks from now, the movers come to pack us up to move from one small town in Virginia to another one in Texas.
This week’s brag: I signed a contract to be a columnist for U.S. News & World Report. We’ll see if that drives any business. Here’s hoping…
Have a great weekend! I <3 the Brag Basket concept!

What a day! The State of Now AgIowa was better than I thought it could have been. Passionate speakers, engaged audience, a fine large day.
Now it’s on to Smalltown on November 8
Becky McCray says
Stephen, congratulations! I couldn’t agree more. Most of us try to start our day with an impossible list. Better to focus on just 6 or so.
Tom, I always appreciate it when you share you upcoming topics.
Jason, congrats on the new writing gig! And all the best for a safe move.
Deb, I’m so very happy for you! You’ve created something terrific and touched lives. I can’t wait to see you in Hutchinson!
