Recently I called my credit card company and was greeted with a cheery, “How can I make your day remarkable?” It made me laugh, and I went on to tell her exactly how she could do that.
The phrase stayed with me. I wrote it in big letters on my computer and taped it to the door of my office. I shared the story with others. I was genuinely struck by the thought…..
What if we really DID try to make other people’s time with us “remarkable”?
According to Webster: “worthy of notice; extraordinary”. Wow! Whose day do I want to make remarkable? Students? The principal? The janitor? The cafeteria workers? In what way might I do that? What does it look like? Often a simple thank you for what they do will suffice.
Sometimes a person’s day can be brightened just by knowing that someone sees him/her. Noticing something they’re doing, engaging in conversation with them, just taking a moment out of your day to brighten someone else’s. What a noble goal.
In order to do this, we need to be intentional about it. Determine each day to seek out at least one person – in a store, on your walk, at your work, even via email – to interact with and make their day “remarkable”.
Does it excite you to give it a try?
