It’s the Little Things that are the Biggest
It was Friday and I was ready to relax. It was an especially long week and I was ready for my Friday Beach Day. First, though, I was unwinding from the week at my daily stop at my local coffee shop.
As I took some deep breaths to relax, my barista handed me my cup of coffee. On the lid she had written:
“Just for you Dan”.
Such a little thing, but it made my day. I smiled, thanked her, put it on Facebook and was in a great mood all day. I realized that life is not just about work, it’s about being part of the wonderful paradise we live in AND the great people that make our day.
What one little thing are you doing for all of the people around you? It could be your spouse, partner, other family members, team partners, manager or someone else.
Start today. Not sure of what to do? Just start of list of people’s names and then brainstorm about what you could do foreach one. Then, once the list is done, start checking off (on the left of your items) the nice things you are doing.
Don’t pressure yourself. Just do one a day. It will not only change some people’s lives, it will also change yours! You are becoming your very best you!
