Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign round his or her neck that says – Make me feel important!

The Christmas period has traditionally been recognised as a time of “goodwill to all mankind” cialis generique discount. As we are now well into December, many people will be thinking more about family and friends and for a large part of the population, how they may be spending an extended break.
Today, I would like to encourage you to think not only about how you treat your family and friends during this festive period, but also how you treat everybody you come into contact with throughout the whole year. This will include family, friends, colleagues, strangers, your customers (internal and external) and all the other people who provide you with a service as you interact with them during your day-to-day life.? Sometimes in the hustle, bustle and busy-ness of everyday life, it is too easy to forget to recognise people for what they do, whether it affects us personally or not, (see our last newsletter about “being busy”).
It is suggested that it takes thirty days of practice to create a new habit, so start now by taking just a few moments out of your day to notice people around you doing things right, and recognise them in some way which could be a simple as a “Thank you!” or even just a smile. Imagine they have a sign on them that says, “Please make me feel important”, you may be surprised how they respond and how good it’ll make you feel too.
Imagine the positive difference to others you could make by practicing throughout December and January so that for 2013 it becomes the way you do things, a new habit – each and every day, and have fun doing it!
