This morning, for some reason I noticed the trash can in our employee locker room. Nothing special about this trash can, but I realized that I had never myself taken it out, nor had I ever asked anyone else to take care of it, but it has always been taken care of ever since we opened this building. I know what you’re thinking, “Whooptee do! Some one took out the trash.”. It may seem like a small thing, and indeed it is, but the important part is that I didn’t have to ask and I’ve never had to do it.
I started thinking about all the little things like this that I have never noticed over the years. I am all over the big items, finding and fixing problems, but this morning I realized that I need to notice and be more appreciative of the hundreds of small things that my staff just does because they care. More importantly, I need to take the time to thank my staff, past and present, for all the little things that they “just take care of”.
Thank you, guys, for all the things I never do!
Did you thank your staff for the little things today?
