A New Item for Your To-do List

It seems that in this busy hustle-and-bustle world we live in, we tend to be so focused on ourselves, our families and our to do lists that we forget about what’s important: basic common courtesy.

When is the last time you held the door for someone? Said hello to the employee at the grocery store who is checking out your groceries or preparing your deli meat? How about asking the bank teller how his or her day is going? Or letting someone pull out in front of you while you are stuck in bumper to bumper traffic…what is one more car in front of you really going to matter?

These things seem so small and maybe they don’t matter to you. But I bet that the person standing behind the counter all day will appreciate it. I bet if you try it just once and see their face after you’ve asked “how is your day going?”, you’ll be so surprised and feel so good…that you’ll add it to your daily to-do list.
