A walk before work.
Making your bed first thing in the morning.
Saying hi when you see someone.
Yet Simple does not mean Easy.
Answering the phones with a smile.
Double checking acknowledgements.
Doing an accurate takeoff.
Putting out jobsite signs.
Reading back an order to a customer.
Simple. Not Easy.
Focusing, concentrating on the SIMPLE tasks over time will give you the most success. It’s not EASY. But it is SIMPLE.
Still feel like reading?
“If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.” – Romans 12:8
Team, if you are detailed oriented and your teammate isn’t, offer help. If you suck putting together an email, ask a teammate. Lean on your GOD GIVEN STRENGTHS and DELEGATE and work with others on your weaknesses. That forms a tightly woven rope of strengths making us an unstoppable force!
DO NOT SPEAK BAD ABOUT A TEAMMATE. WHAT GOOD DOES THAT DO? EVEN IF IT IS IN JEST AS A JOKE, WHAT GOOD COMES FROM THAT? NONE! SPEAK HIGHLY OF YOUR TEAM. STICK UP FOR THAT, TRAIN THEM…
EASY ON PEOPLE! TOUGH AS NAIL ON STANDARDS AND PROCEDURES!
Lastly, I do encourage you to get outside and enjoy the outdoors… in anyway you can. What a wonderful way to connect. I promise you it will be worth your time. And when you are there. No phones. No frantic pace. Slow down… so you can see things. Here’s something I can share. New snapping turtles. Right along the Eisenbahn trail, as we were biking with our kids. We didn’t have time, but TOOK TIME to stop and check em out. Great experience. It doesn’t have to be a fancy or planned… just do it.
