If Everyone Were Like…

If everyone were like George, Tiffany and Pauline the world would be a better place.
These people, part of my every day job routine, are examples of great people.
Just ordinary people going about their daily work routines making the extra effort in relationships. They’re talkative, engaging, inclusive and encouraging. They care about who you are and what you do no matter what your job title is or what your job duties entail.

In short, they go above and beyond just because your another human being and they’re interested in what you’re doing. Perhaps a rare and elusive quality these days.

Interestingly, George is an IT guy. Pauline is a cashier. And Tiffany is part of employee wellness. Not that there’s any correlation between what they do and who they are as people; it’s just interesting to note what they do and who they have decided to be as people.

I’m not trying to belabor the point here in any way I just thought it neat to share this little tidbit about a great group of people that fight their way through each and every day just like everyone else. And by anyone’s measure they’re going through each day with as positive a mindset as possible while enriching the lives of those around them.

It feels good to elevate the social standing and status of other people especially when it is merited. I must ask then, who in your life is going out of their way to make your life more full and complete just by going that extra mile and figuring out another something more about you? Who is making the extra effort to know you and make you feel special about your existence?

I’d love to hear your stories about people you barely know that treat you like someone special.

It’d be great to hear from you,
