Last month, K and I set out some treats for the delivery folks. Like kids on Christmas Eve leaving out cookies for Santa, we waited in anticipation. The first gal drove around to the back of our house. Strike one. A few more came and it didn’t seem like anyone got a kick out of it.
Until this guy. (If you watch the video, turn up the volume so you can really hear his excitement)
His reaction was awesome. It was a good reminder, too. What matters isn’t pleasing everyone, or trying to make them all happy. Maybe those other folks just grabbed a snack from the house up the street, or they’re about to head home for dinner. Maybe someone doesn't like snacks. What matters is just making one person’s day a little brighter. Like that guys.
I have to remember this from time to time, running a business, trying to make an impact. Everyone isn’t going to be blown away, or find something meaningful in what I have to say. That’s okay. As long as one person does, though, that’s enough for me.
