For the Olympic Bobsled teams this job seems equally important. And, without their entire team, nothing would run as smoothly as it does. Whether the reward is satisfaction of contributing to a job well done or a medal, every job performed is important to the bottom line.
Every job is important!
We received a note recently from our newspaper delivery guy stating that he would be out of town and hoped that our newspaper delivery wouldn't be late. But, if we did have a problem, he left a phone number for us to call instead of contacting him.
This is obviously a person who feels good about what he is doing. His job is important to him and he probably receives little appreciation for all that he does. And, to be honest, I didn't think much about it until now. I do love waking up to a cup of coffee and the paper readily available in just a few short steps. (Alright, it is at the end of the driveway, but I don't have to change out of my jammies to go get it.)
Even before he can do his job he depends on a team of people to help him. From the reporters who get the news, to the editors, print people and even the drivers who get it to him in a timely manner so he can package it and get it ready for delivery. Wow, That's a lot of work just so I can enjoy reading the paper!!
So, whether you are a one man/woman team or have the support of an entire team around you. Remember to appreciate the all the ones who make your day, job and life easier. They are all Valuable to your life.
Does everybody enjoy watching the winter Olympics as much as we do?
One of the most inspiring things about the Olympics is that the athletes have worked for years and have overcome huge obstacles, dealt with injuries and many have altered their lives to become Olympians. They have had so much support along the way to achieve their dream.
This is inspiring to many of us who can't imagine all that goes into achieving one goal. Watching them makes you want to go out and do the best you can - no matter what it is. These athletes don't let anything get in their way of competing in this year's games, or in looking ahead four years to continue reaching their goal.
Let today be the start of something new! If the plan isn't working, change the plan, But never the goal.
This is a great reminder for kids as well as adults. Flu season seems to be extra intense this year, even for those of us who have had our flu shots. Flu spreads quickly when everybody, everywhere doesn't cover their mouth when they cough and sneeze. They spray droplets of the disease all over objects and surfaces that other people touch all day long. Then these germs can spread from one surface to another and make even more people sick. The more people that get sick, the less productive your office will be. We were recently in Disneyland and noticed that they had hand sanitizing stations throughout the park, so even the "Happiest place on Earth" doesn't want you to get sick.
Stay home if you can! If not, keep your distance from other people. Don't shake hands and try to "meet" over the phone instead of in person.
Use a tissue and throw it away when you are done with it.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Wash your hands often using soap and hot water. Carry a hand sanitizer with you and use it often.
Avoid the office hot spots for germs, such as door handles, light switches, microwaves, refrigerator door handles and desk tops.
