Overachiever's Motivation Mix

The Smartsheet Overachievers are here to give you the songs that will keep you going and keep you achieving! Here’s what’s on the playlist right now.

Mandisa, “Overcomer”

“After surviving Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav, the Nashville 2020 tornado, and the Nashville 2020 Christmas Day Bombing, this has become an anthem for me. I’ve had to start over so many times, I’m beginning to feel like a cat with nine lives! But I refuse to be a victim in any circumstance. The second-half of the chorus is where I hang my hat:

You might be down for a moment

Feeling like it’s hopeless

That’s when He reminds you

That you’re an overcomer

You’re an overcomer!”

- Darla Brown (@Darla Brown), Process Improvement Manager at Loews Hotels, First Year Overachiever

More about me:

As I shared with you last December, I love enjoying outdoor activities, but today I’d like to share one in particular that’s quite different from what we commonly call hobbies. Last month, I had the opportunity to participate in a beach cleanup campaign organized by the Social Responsibility pillar of Smartsheet Costa Rica. This activity not only raised awareness about our waste management, but also strengthened my love for nature and my desire to take care of it! Here are pictures of the team and some findings of the day. It is worth to say that 114 kilos of trash were collected that day.

On another note, I’m very excited about my next adventure. At the end of this month, I’ll be visiting and climbing the Acatenango volcano in Guatemala. I’ll be camping at a base with a view of the Volcan de Fuego’s lava and ash eruptions. I’m thrilled just thinking about the incredible views I’ll have at sunset, at night, and at sunrise the next morning! I think I won’t be able to sleep so I don’t miss a second of such beauty!

Have you ever visited an active volcano before? Share your experiences and recommendations with me; I’d love to hear from you!

    Awesome newsletter @Marcela! I always love seeing the different community members highlighted and to hear about their stories and experiences. I really like the ICYMI portion as well because as things continue to move quickly day after day, it's easy to miss a new announcement or feature that could be value-added for my workload, or that I can share with my team. Thanks for putting this all together!

    @Marcela the volcano trip sounds awesome. In 2021, my wife and I were in Iceland and saw the Fagradalsfjall volcano erupt about 8 times in a short time viewing after our hike to the viewpoint. Truly amazing. Think about having something you could cook over any slow flowing lava that you're able to get close to, if possible (i.e., marshmallows). Great effort on the cleanup project. Each initiative like that makes a difference.
