It’s a busy time of the year. Year-end budgets, working hard to achieve revenue goals and planning for next year. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and not enjoy the Holiday/Christmas season. Here’s a few simple tips to remember during this Christmas/Holiday season.
- Be generous. When you see the Salvation Army ringing the bell, stop, drop BUT don’t roll! Drop some money in the red kettle and thank the volunteers for doing good work. Let someone cut in ahead of you at the grocery store. Give your waiter or waitress, that’s working two jobs, an extra tip.
- Be patient. Yes, some of you will be enjoying the company of relatives that can wear on your very last nerve. When you find yourself becoming triggered by a difference of opinion or hearing the same story for the umpteenth time, say to yourself. “World hunger is a problem---this is not a problem.”
- Be nice. I am a fan of the late author, Maya Angelou. One of her famous quotes is particularly applicable for this time of year.
"I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
People will forget what you did,
But people will never forget how you made them feel."
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Thank you for your support, friendship and business. It is appreciated.
