Today at work we had FISH training, and wow was it inspiring! We watched a video of Pike's Place Fish Market in Seattle, Washington to show how much fun they have at work and how they interact with customers. The group discussed four simple principles to making your day, or someone else's day better. This also included making your work environment enjoyable and a place you WANT to go everyday. I must say that I am a lucky girl because this lady was preaching to the choir. I am very blessed.
Now anyway... what are the four principles you ask?
1. Be There
2. Make Their Day
4. Choose your Attitude
The End. That's all. Simple as that.
I'm not going to go in depth and discuss each principle because it is very self explanatory.
I am writing this post about my training because we shared stories to show how Principle 2 makes you feel all mushy gushy inside.
**I shared mine about my parents visit!
**Another coworker shared her story about how she went through a drive through and when she got to the window, her order was already paid for by the car in front of her. She soon realized it was another friend who paid for her meal.
**A friend of mine shared a story about how she was having company one weekend and she was working so much and stressing about the cleanliness of her house. One afternoon, she entered her house and realized it was spotless. Her neighbor, who has a key to her house, came in and made her day.
More inspiring and heartfelt stories were shared and although I do this occasionally, it made me want to do things for people right then and there! I wanted to go to Dunkin Donuts just so I could pay for the car behind me. SOMETHING!
So...do something to make someone's day. It honestly makes you feel great inside and you know you put a smile on someone else's face. If people see your act of kindness, it might inspire them! Pay it forward!
