My family and I are in London to witness one the greatest events that happens every four years. With six days to go before the Olympics starts, I will be based in London where I will be meeting with clients and partners, sharing some of the great things CHEETEYE is doing and preparing to do.
Walking around the great city of London and catching a glimpse of Olympic athletes got me thinking about greatness. Many books have been written on this subject and I recently had two great experiences. The first was witnessing my daughter being swamped by a group of Japanese girls on a boat trip down the Thames a few days ago. They all requested an individual photo with my daughter! When I asked my daughter why they did this, she said “I just smiled at them”. Her moment of greatness was brought on by simply being friendly.
My second recent great experience was spending a week with a new client. Until that week I had only spent time with the surveillance director who is an extremely friendly person. His friendliness has rubbed off onto the rest of his team and as a result I had one of the most enjoyable weeks I’ve had in long time by being exposed to this group of friendly people. We laughed and had a lot of fun and yes, we did get all the work done. In fact, we got a lot more done than usual.
Stay friendly, it’s a great attribute to have!
