Here’s Looking At U2


Last month, I had one of those experiences that you remember for the rest of your life – I saw U2 live in concert at the Sphere in Las Vegas!

I could probably stop right there because what could be cooler than that? But the equally cool thing is, it was completely spur of the moment.

When I arrived in town for the Manifest conference, I didn’t know U2 was performing, and I had zero plans to visit the Sphere. However, when a friend suggested we go, I didn’t have to think twice, because even though I’m not a die-hard fan of the band (and can barely hum, much less name, any of their songs), I knew this was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss.

I’m so glad I said yes. The music was terrific. The venue was even better. If you have a chance to go, take it.

And that’s what I’ll leave you with this week. Throughout my career and life, I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to say “Yes” to a lot of opportunities, including working with ALAN. (I’ll be forever grateful to Saddle Creek for believing in me enough to offer me the chance to work for this amazing organization. If you’ve never heard my story about that, please ask.) And like Robert Frost’s famous road less traveled by, those yesses have made all of the difference.

Whether it’s a last-minute invitation to a live music event or a chance to help ALAN fill an open case, I hope you’ll look for ways to say yes more often this month. You may just be surprised at the good things that come your way – and in the words of my new favorite band, it might just help you find what you’re looking for.
