Last Sunday I was registered to run the Avera Race Against Breast Cancer 5K.
I was so excited. I ran this last year and the whole event is so awesome.
I’ve been fighting a really bad cough and all the side effects that go along with it and wasn’t sure I could run but I was NOT going to miss the packet pick up. I want my t-shirt!
The day before the race I went downtown to get my packet. I parked in the back and I was surprised to see how they decorated the area leading up to the store. They really did the little bit extra. Actually, a lot extra. And, this was in the back! Imagine what they did to the front?
The extra effort they did made me want to run the race even more!
Unfortunately, I wasn’t well enough to run and I was so disappointed. But, I couldn’t stop thinking about the extra effort they did even for the packet pick-up experience.
They made what could have been a just a normal packet pick-up time – fun!
Have you ever been the recipient of someone or a company doing that little bit extra? How did it make you feel?
Have you done the little bit extra lately?
The good news is that it doesn’t take much these days to make someone feel special. With e-mail, texts, social media, etc. we are losing the personal touch so when it does happen – wow!
Let’s make a pact right now that in the next 3 days we are going to wow someone.
I’m going to send someone on my newsletter list a copy of my book Confidence: Now is Your Time – 31 Days to a More Extraordinary You!
Who will it be for you and what will you do?
I mentioned in my last Wednesday Wisdom I’m going to offer teleclasses on different topics that will help you think differently and have the courage to take a next step.
The first teleclass I offered was all about your paper. Yes, your paper piles! If you missed it you can still purchase the recording.
My next teleclass will be about wasted guilt! The teleclass is How to Beat the Guilt of Taking Care of Yourself First. You will want to put Wednesday, October 12 at 6 PM EDT in your calendar. Details coming soon!
