I had just finished my morning workout and was on my way out of the gym door when I heard the lady at the desk pleasantly shout, “Have a Great Day” to the woman who was a few steps ahead of me. This was not an uncommon exchange of words for us each morning, yet this morning was different. The answer from the woman in front of me caused me to stop and ponder. Her response was, “That’s the Goal!” She did not speak in a tone of sarcasm, but rather in an upbeat voice of appreciation and declaration.
Wow, I love it! I could tell she is a person who is aware of her smallest thoughts, and the force of energy that she expresses them out into the world.
Dr. Wilson expresses clearly his thought…..
“This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste – or use it for good; but what I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it! When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever. leaving in its place something I have traded for it. I want it to be gain not loss; good and not evil; success and not failure; in order that I will not regret the price that I have paid for it.” Dr. Heartsill Wilson
When you communicate, what is your goal? Is your message a touch down for those that are listening and your team?
