Spring is the time of year when we gain some extra hours of daylight.
We can feel the warmth of the sunshine and this encourages new shoots, leaves and branches to develop and grow on plants and trees all around us.
Spring can also inspire us to grow and develop personally in many ways. The longer days very often encourage us to exercise more by walking, cycling, running and more, releasing endorphins and serotonins and these have a positive effect on both physical health and mental well-being. We also very often, become more social by re-acquainting ourselves with existing and new neighbours, as well as seeing friends and family during the extended light and sometimes, warm evenings.
Spring is an ideal time to grow and develop our thinking and approach to our personal and work life, taking inspiration from the numerous stimuli all around us. This includes the thoughts and actions of inspirational people; some of who are well known and some lesser known and yet all of them have made a positive difference in the world.
A couple of quotes that come to mind are:
“There ain’t no rules around here. We’re trying to accomplish things”
Thomas Edison (1847 – 1931)
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world”
Anne Frank (1929 – 1945)
Take a few minutes out of your day to think about how you can feel personally inspired and also easily inspire your family, friends, colleagues and customers to provide them with an amazing experience every day.
