I was inspired to write these few words this morning by a young lad that was on duty at the school crossing this morning.
It’s Tuesday morning its a nice crisp Canterbury winter morning, as I was walking my daughter into her school we had to cross the school crossing.
The lad that was on the crossing lollipop on the opposite side looked up and gave me a big smile, I returned the smile with a “Cheers”, he responded with a big hearty “no problem, enjoy your day sir” He didn’t know it but yes he “made my day”.
With marketing it is important that in our daily activities we are making someones day, it can be anyone, you never know how you affect someone but you can be rest assured that the mindset you create will attract success.
What this boy didn’t know:
1. I was feeling flat, it has been a touching weekend in my personal life.
2. I was struggling with the smile until I viewed his.
3. The teacher that was supervising the crossing with him was visibly impressed.
4. A fellow parent on the walk into school also commented on it as well.
He put a positive spin on my day and yes now I feel awesome telling the story, I’m sure he will feel equally as good, if not more because he would have done it to many more people this morning also.
My only regret about it is “I didn’t have my phone on me to take a photo”.
I would like to find out more about this lad – I reckon he would be successful in what he does, happy and well liked by his fellow students and teaching staff.
As you go about your day today think about, Is what I’m doing making someones day? It’s good to remember that you are on display in everything you do both in your personal life and in your business. Are you and your company making someones day
