October 27 – Cranky Co-Worker Day
It did make me realize how simple it is to brighten someone’s day. It took all of $9 and 10 minutes to make the little goodie bags and put them on people’s desks, and it brought a little smile to everyone’s face. How often do we wish that people would do something for us, but we don’t do anything for anyone else? My mom always told me growing up “when you are in a bad mood or just feeling icky do something nice for somebody else”. That is probably the best advice I have ever gotten in my whole life. I try to do little things here and there to brighten people’s days. Today reconfirmed that if you do simple things for people it can make them feel appreciated and like they matter.
Go do something for your cranky co-workers today and tomorrow you may not have any cranky co-workers!
