As I sit in my hotel room in New Orleans, sipping complimentary merlot from what appears to be a juice glass, I am suddenly struck with a huge wave of gratitude.
This week I met a ton of new people. I extensively interviewed five of them, and it took me until after dark tonight to finish. And you know what? I loved it. I loved the whole experience.
Not that interviewing strangers is always (or even often) interesting, but it puts a lot of things in perspective. I met five people who sincerely wanted to better themselves, improve their lives, and help others.
And the small part I played in the process will give one of them the opportunity to do just that. What an amazing honor. I mean that.
Gratitude: What You Do Matters
Banker, cop, dry cleaner, bartender, garbage collector, or doctor…you make someone’s life better. And reciprocally, those who you serve make your life better.
