Right about now everyone is busy making resolutions….always a good thing even if you don’t keep them….because by making a resolution you are pausing and assessing yourself. My big resolution last year was to start this blog. Which I did do but slacked off quite a bit too so it certainly is not the “next big blog” but my kids are truly thankful because when I write my blog I preach to cyber space and not them!!
Anyhow, I was reflecting about the atmosphere at work. I am truly thankful to have a good career when so many are seeking work. However, thinking about work led me to reflect again on how we behave and the concept of genuine courtesy. How often do you and others pass people in the hallways and not even say “hello” or “how are you”? Reasons are many: we are either lost in thought, buried in our PDA of choice, or unhappy with our current job (but feel we have to stick it out to pay the bills), or just because common courtesy is just not expected anymore….. Also, have you noticed that some people WILL say, “Hi how are you” but move quickly by before you have a chance to respond? What’s that all about anyway?
Real human connectivity is critical to bettering our world. We can only do that one person at a time. When you take the time to stop, talk and connect with genuine interest all of a sudden your environment becomes more pleasant, caring and positive. We were made to be social creatures…..let’s go back to the basics and see how we can change society one touch at a time…………..
