Betsy’s Bits

Remember the show that was on TV some years back called Name that Tune? Contestants had to decide how many notes of a song they thought they needed to hear in order to name a song. Some were great and only needed 2 or 3 notes to correctly identify it. They won money and could advance to the final round to win even more money. I think it’s great when we can easily identify something with just a few notes or letters. At the Leadership Retreat, I asked our board members (new and old) to tell me what they thought the letters ALAO meant or stood for, to them. My example was Always Looking At Opportunities. I got some really great ideas and now I need to decide which one is the best (because I offered a prize). The trouble is, I can’t really decide, since they all relate to ALAO in some meaningful way. I think they’re all winners! What do you think?
