“You can learn a lot about a person from his dreams. What we dream is a reflection of who we are. It is the measure of our aspirations and goals, and of those values we hold dear and place above all else.”
– Zadok Rabinowitz
It’s one of the many reasons (along with football and fond memories of my Grandma Mary’s roast pork and Romanian sausage dinner) that New Year’s Day is one of my favorite holidays.
Every year I have made – and kept – the same resolution: To thank, challenge and even inspire my family, friends and colleagues, as well as myself.
As part of that resolution, I started a holiday tradition as President and CEO of Henry Ford Hospital to send my colleagues and team a New Year’s card with a very special message.
In 2011, that message was BELIEVE. Our belief in our mission, each other, our work and our city is what drives our relationships and emotional engagement in what we do every day.
When you truly believe, there’s no limit to what you can achieve and dream…which brings me to this year’s message.
In 2012, I want challenge each and every one of you to DREAM big and truly invest in making Henry Ford Hospital and the Henry Ford Medical Group GREAT.
Inspired by quote from writer Zadok Rabinowitz, I sent the following card (below) to our leadership, which I now share with you.
