Editorial Comment: The Spirits That Move Us

As you prepare to celebrate the holidays, and the true start of the new millennium, I ask that you look back on this year, and ask yourself how you could have done things differently—not only for your business life, but for your personal life as well. What would you have changed? Who could you have lent a helping hand to? Who could have benefited from that phone call you should have made, but didn’t? With self-reflection, comes charity, and with charity comes humanity.

I ask that you carry the spirit of the holiday season with you throughout next year, and just maybe, one person at a time, we can create a better world for our children and grandchildren.

Finally, I want to remind everyone to keep sending in those submissions for a new monthly section that features ICS readers. If you haven’t sent yours in yet, then here’s what you need to do: Submit photos of yourself next to your truck or van, with a list of what products, chemicals and equipment you regularly use. Also, tell me something about you, and any “tricks of the trade” you would like to share. Send all submissions to: ICS Magazine, Attn: Arpi Nalbandian, 22801 Ventura Blvd., Suite 115, Woodland Hills, CA 91364.

From all of us at ICS, we wish you and yours a happy holiday season.
