So I’m at the dealership getting my car serviced and when you bring it in they do a check on your windshield to check for dings and stuff that could cause spiderweb cracks. And the guy who checked mine found 20 bad spots. And through his company he is only allowed to fix 3 and it would cost me $60! Well we were talking about the military and life and we connected. So he made me a deal. Instead of going through his company and letting them bank the money for the sale and him only get $12 for his hard work, we agreed upon fixing it off the books so I’d only pay half price and he would pocket the cash. Well long story short he’s prior Army, has a 4 month old daughter, a fiance with no job, has PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and he’s living less than paycheck to paycheck. So I gave him the full $60. The smile on his face filled my soul with joy. In my opinion, there’s nothing better in life then making someone else’s life better even if it’s something as simple as a $30 deal. So go out and make someone smile. It does wonders. Trust me.
Never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it. Never neglect the little things.
The little things matter most.
