IF YOU DON’T HAVE TIME, IT IS HARD TO BE A NICE HUMAN

TGIM

Craziest thing!

In 1973 a study was done, where adult students were told to prepare a project on the Good Samaritan.  It was all rigged.

HERE’S A GOOD SUMMARY OF IT:

You see on the day of their presentation 1/3 were set up to arrive early, a 1/3 on time…and a 1/3 were DESTINED TO BE LATE…

And then they set up the scam…

They literally had a person that needed help in their path…

You know what happened?  ONLY 10% OF THOSE LATE HELPED!  SOME STEPPED RIGHT OVER THE PERSON.  60% HELPED IF THEY WERE EARLY!

(I know 40% never even helped…but that discussion is for another time.)

So basically if you are STRESSED TO THE HELL OUT, OR BUSY, BUSY, BUSY… ALL THE TIME… even if you are currently studying on how to be a good Samaritan, you won’t do the right thing!

It makes sense if you are “self-preserving” your own body, or mental health you are the one that needs help, so your mind protects you… but if you think you are always helping… you probably aren’t really helping anyone… because your mind is so busy self-preserving…

How true it is… a stressed out person can’t even help themselves…. how can they help you!?!?!

YOU WILL NOT

“WOW” A CUSTOMER….

TAKE TIME TO ASK SOMEONE HOW THEIR DAY IS GOING…

SIT AND BREAK BREAD WITH SOMEONE…

COME UP WITH GOOD IDEAS… 

You are just in survival mode…

SO…

 

FOCUS ON ONE THING AT A TIME… TO GET AHEAD.

AND IF YOU NEED HELP WITH THAT… LET ME KNOW… TIME MANAGEMENT IS CRITICAL IN ALL THE WORK WE DO!

 

BE ORGANIZED ON OUR CUSTOMERS BEHALF THIS WEEK PEOPLE!

 

TGIM!
