Our little Linnea has many toys to choose from as you can imagine. With 2 Sets of First Grandparents and countless uncles and aunts this lttle girl has gotten an overabundance of shinny toys. With all the latest toys and gadgets she prefers a empty plain water bottle to make her happy. As I have watched her these past few days it has made me wonder how many “plain water bottles” that used to make us happy but we traded in for the new shinny stuff thinking it would make us happy. In life the simple things really are the most important things and will ultimately allow us to be happy. In search of happiness we tend to think the “stuff” will make us happy. Stuff never makes us happy but that “plain water bottle” (Family, Friends, Health) always do. As you look to get happier try simplifying your life.

I love the quote, “What you take for granted someone else is praying for.” The last couple of days I have wanted to hold my granddaughter all the time. Trying to do computer work yesterday with one had posed a challenging task. It took me at least 5x longer to do simple things. I was rally thankful I have two working hands as I never thought about how much I use them doing simple things. That brought me to today’s topic of what we take for granted. Take a minute and watch what I have to say.
Have you recently wondered where the words Please and Thank You have gone? I was taught that Please is sign of respect and Thank YOu a sign of appreciation. How often do we respect others by using the word Please? How often to we show that we appreciate others? In a business I would be surprised if every empoyee in your company was not Thanking every customer every day. If that is not happening I can only assume that business won’t be around very long. Take time to evaluate how many times a day you are asking Please and saying Thank You? Get in the routine of using these magic words.
Years ago I heard the statement “Nothing Fails Like Success” from Stephen Covey. It didn’t sound right to me until Dr. Covey explained it. Today Robin Sharma shares with you why this statement is true. We must continue to evolve our lives and business even when we have success. We can learn from a long list of companies that were on top and everyone thought no-one would ever produce a better product(blackberry phone). We must continue to create new ideas and improve even those things we do well.
