Generations of Shine

Families like ours return to the Athens Y Camp in Tallulah Falls, Georgia






And the camp has thousands of hand painted placards hanging from the walls and ceiling of the mess hall to prove it.

The oldest ones date back to the early 1900s and the most inspiring ones hang with three or four others, each bearing the name of a family member who attended from another generation. 

It's inspiring to see, because it reinforces my belief that people and organizations that shine will acquire loyal friends, fans, and followers. Instead of a placard, though, evidence might come in the form of

daily customers,

twitter followers,

active alumnae,

files filled with thank you notes, or

a large rolodex of friends,

Look around you. What are the artifacts that serve as evidence of either your shine or the shine of your organization?
