We should all strive to be helpful:
Whether it is at our work, play, home, or church, we should work at being helpful toward others and organizations.
Tom Knox, V.P. of Ace Hardware, said: “We don’t want to be known for having the nicest people. We want to be known for having the most helpful people.” You will hear people often say, or justify their actions, of being faithful: “I’ve been faithful to this company [or church], and they let me go.” But were they helpful? Some think just because they show up every day and have been at a place for many years, that should count for something. I’m sure it does.
Productivity yields results:
At some point, people are going to want to see some production, productivity results. If we are not careful, we will quit producing, get lazy, and take things for granted. But if we are faithful and helpful, we will be rewarded, promoted, and given raises. See, it’s not enough to show up — we must produce.
So, let’s purpose to be helpful to those around us, take initiative. That’s when we will make a difference in the lives of others.
Just a thought,
