My kids and wife wanted to go skiing. I didn’t.  I’ve been on the road traveling as a motivational speaker to Florida and Pennsylvania, I wanted to sit home, eat Cheetos, watch the Olympics and veg out.   But I’m glad I went skiing…my family was right.  Doing ANYTHING beats doing nothing nearly all of the time.

(Besides, there was powder.  Lots of powder. : )

Check out my video message from ski slopes at Copper Mountain, Colorado:

Hey, this is Brad Montgomery from

I got a message for you related to skiing. So, I’m in Colorado. I’m at Copper
Mountain. We’re at 12,000 feet. I just skied down that cliff. Check that out.
Okay, I didn’t ski down it well, but I did ski down the cliff and I had a good time.

Here’s my point. I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to come today at all. If it
was my choice after being on the road in Florida and Pennsylvania, as a
motivational speaker, I was pooped and I really would have preferred to stay home
and watch the Olympics, drink hot chocolate, and, you know, read a cheap novel or
something. But because of my wife and because of my kids, we came up skiing
and Iím so glad I did.

So, here comes the message. I tell my audiences all the time this. What are you
going to do to create joy and happiness in your life starting today? What are you
going to do? And my choice was to do nothing and that was a mistake. I got here
and I had a good time and it’s awesome.

So, what are you going to do? Are you sitting around reading a book? Are you
watching the Olympics right now? Are you doing something that could be more
productive, that could be more fun? I’m pretty sure the answer’s probably yes. If
youíre like me, get going.

So, have fun. Make life fun. That means you got to actually do something to get
involved. If you like skiing, go for it. If you donít like skiing, find what you want
to do, have fun.

Looking for a motivational speaker?I’d  love to be your guy. Right now, I’m
going down there. Take care.

Okay Peeps!   You asked for it, you got it!  Here’s my latest ‘Brad Spouts Off’ episode direct from the Center for Humor in the Workplace Case Studies.  (Ok, you caught me… we filmed it in my office.)

Are you eager for a better workplace vibe, (oooh!   what a fancy business buzzword!) more freedom to have fun, and an escape from a lousy toxic work environment?  Are you waiting for “THEM” to enable you to to make that happen?   Can’t wait until they finally fix it so that you can start working as hard as you should be?   Can’t wait for them to change that one thing so that work can be fun — and productive — again?

Well then, lucky you, because this video is just for you.

Think I’m wrong?  I dare ya….leave a comment below! (Heck, leave one even if you agree.)
