Someone once told me that washing their car made them drive better and I think it is true. When my car is clean I drive more carefully. It may be because I have a little more pride in the shiny paint, or perhaps it’s that the windows are also easier to see through, but somehow everything just feels a little easier less harried and driving is more of a pleasure.
I washed my car today and had an interesting thought: If a clean car makes me drive better, what would a clean office do? I know a feel a lot better about my desktop when it is not cluttered with screenshots, downloaded files and sticky notes.
The moral of the story: If clean and organized makes you feel better, clean and organize. Drive well, be organized, stress less.
Shock with your talent, your _____, your downright boldness, baby!
Be real, be you and really show me who you are, because until you do, you’re just like everyone else and I’m tuning out.
When I first saw a funny flight safety announcement I was in awe at the creativity and courage it took the flight attendant to put on such a show, all in the name of flight safety, but guess what, people listened. People heard the message instead of ignoring it as usual and people took off on that plane with a good understanding of how to be safe.
Check out this example and tell me you wouldn’t listen. The fact that it is a Southwest employee is interesting and that is something for another blog post (think case study) coming soon.
