The fifty-seven dollar worm

16 02 2016

“A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.” ~Bill Vaughan

Finding your inner child will help you take pleasure from the simple things.  I, personally, still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.  I try to get as much out of every day as I can, and really like the pleasure that comes when you help someone who didn’t ask for your help.  Whether that’s giving advice, a present, or otherwise helping someone’s day get a little better, the rewards are worth way more than the effort put into it.
Leaders, if you find yourself trudging through your day, un-motivated, and just looking at the clock, get up, walk around, and try to make someone smile.  Stop by the desk of that person who looks stressed, or perplexed, and ask what you can do to help.  If you find a nifty shortcut on something to do with your PC, share the idea, to help others save time.  Giving a little bit of un-solicited help will lift both your spirits and theirs, too.

Speaking of worm(holes)…
