RAD IDEA: Find Your Pineapple

RAD IDEA: Find Your PineappleBy Wesley Harden

My Rad Idea would be to find your pineapple.

As imaging leaders we face many challenges and stressful moments every day. Over time this can drain us and perhaps impede us from providing our staff with the best support and focus we can. I encourage leaders to find something that invigorates them and refreshes them, thus enabling them to be the best for their teams. For me, that is growing pineapples!

I love fresh pineapple so one day I started to try and grow one. It became an outlet, a way for me to not think about work and its many stresses. I could focus on the plants and pull weeds, make sure they were being watered properly, getting enough sun, etc. I then can come back to work refreshed and ready to take on whatever might be facing me! I am now up to 40 pineapple plants and more focused and ready to face the daily grind better than ever.

So leaders – go find your pineapple.

Wesley “Wes” Harden is the director of imaging services at Lexington Medical Center.
