Scott
Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development. How were all of these achievements possible at a time when Scott was struggling with the hurdles of brain injury? The answers are in this blog.

    So very true Scott! Laughter is the best medicine at times <3

  • Meg says:

    Loved the clips. Needed the laughs…reminds me of the show Ridiculousness. ☺

    • Scott says:

      Meg, If we all laughed a little more often, the world would be a better place. Thank you for sharing your comment. ~ Scott

  • Trina Bradlee says:

    There are some “epic” bad days in there, Scott… Usually my bad days are not quite as bad as those, Thank The Good Lord!

    • Scott says:

      Trina,

      It would be difficult to have a worse day than the people who were featured in the post. I hope I added a little levity to your day.

  • Pam says:

    sorry I’m laughing to hard to comment

  • Mary says:

    These are great. My “bad” days are rare, not because they have gone well, but because I try not to dwell on the negative aspects. Pity parties and tears only lend energy to negative thoughts. If it truly is an awful day and my head injury symptoms are having a grand time, I find a quiet area, blast Mozart’s Requiem or The Doors, and I’m good.

    • Scott says:

      Mary, you have a great attitude. People tend to accomplish much more by focusing on the future rather than on the things they cannot change. I appreciate your comment and your helpful tips about blasting music.
