There are times when I really miss my brain, and the past week or so has been one of those times. The harder I try to put words together, the harder they are to find. However, I did find some words on a bookmark the other day that sort of fit in with the list of non-negotiables, so here they are:
Speak to people.
Smile at people.
Call people by their names.
Be friendly and helpful.
Be genuinely interested in people.
Be generous with praise–cautious with criticism.
Be considerate with the feelings of others.
Be thoughtful of the opinions of others.
Be alert to give service.
OR, as my dad would say: Be alert; the world needs more lerts.
