Do Ya Get One Back?
Posted 4/12/2011 5:04:00 PM
I always pride myself as being a friendly person with a kind heart. Some days are better than others, but I truly don't find it difficult at all to be amicable and nice to anyone and everyone, from the CEO and President of our company, Peter Smyth, to Edgar who comes into the company every night to empty trash, clean and vacuum. To me it's just about treating everyone with the same respect that I would like in return. It's just not that hard, nor is it rocket science. Most of the time when I smile and say  "hi" to someone that I don't know personally here in the hallways or even on the street I usually get a return smile or hello, but not always. This used to bother me and I'd wonder why they didn't smile back or say hello. Was it because they thought I was a weirdo or had some strange reason to smile and be pleaseant? Maybe their not used to it. Well I just figure now that they have something going on inside of themselves that they're just not happy about or for some reason are afraid to smile and say a simple "hi." It's a beautiful thing to be kind and friendly. Are you on the kind and friendly team?

    Dan, great article. I try to be kind and friendly to everyone, but some people are simply very hard to be kind and friendly with. Those type of people, I keep my distance. In general, I like 99% of the people I meet.
