Last week a friend of mine was having a tough week. I sent her some encouraging words, and I gave her an inspirational book that I read a couple of years ago. She was grateful, it lifted her spirits, and she thanked me.
She’s a good friend, and sent me a text message (somewhat as a joke), “T. Scott, sometimes you’re a really nice guy…” We had a nice laugh about it, and on we went with our daily routines.
Then it hit me...this is a OneMoreStep opportunity...
OneMoreStep thought for this week: We should make our “sometimes”…ALL THE TIME.
Sometimes we’re nice to people even when we’re having a bad day.
Sometimes we make others feel special.
Sometimes we put in the extra effort at work.
Sometimes we concentrate on doing the little things others will appreciate.
Sometimes we make sure to listen to others instead of dominating conversations.
Sometimes we lend a hand without being asked to do so.
Sometimes we stay positive…PMA-ing the day (Positive Mental Attitude)
Sometimes we smile & laugh, and we inspire others to do the same.
Sometimes we say, “Thank You”
Sometimes we say, “Please”
Sometimes we take the focus off of ourselves and we make it “about them”.
Sometimes we let go of what we can’t control, and we have faith in a higher power.
What if we did these things ALL THE TIME? How much of an impact would we make? How much more magic could we make for friends, family, loved ones, and coworkers? How much happier would we be as a result?
Go OneMoreStep in 2012…Make your SOMETIMES…ALL THE TIME…
Have a great day.
