Food for the Soul

Am I the only one thinking about food this month?

It seems you can’t turn around without seeing turkey, fixins and pies in abundance. In a loose poll I’m conducting in a very unscientific manner, I’m finding that many people love Thanksgiving more than any other holiday.

Reasons given:

It’s a time to gather with others without the expectation of presents;

The food is fantastic;

It’s time to go home or stay home;

The smells, the colors and fall clothes;

Football; and

Leftovers 

Here’s a quote from Dorothy Day that may spark some new thinking,

“Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.” 

What are your customers expecting from you this month of abundance?

What if you did something decidedly different so that you stand out with your pack?

  1. Put a quote card in every bag or purchase
  2. Answer the phone with a compelling question rather than hello
  3. Set up a smile contest
  4. Ask for a joke to be told to get a surprise

These types of activities make you and your business stand out, become memorable, and help feed the souls of everyone you touch. Now that’s food for thought!

Is failure an option?

Is failure an option? 

What is your intention for the week?

Are you able to accept that this can happen?

Let me ask you a question…

According to marine biologist, Sylvia Earle,

“The best scientists and explorers have the attributes of kids. They ask questions and have a sense of wonder. They have curiosity. Who, what, where, why, when and how!”

And so we have a call to action!

What questions are you asking your customers, friends and colleagues? Are they merely for curiosity’s sake, or are you seeking to learn something?

There is a big difference. When I’m curious, I ask for my own edification, to compare myself, and to see if I stack up. This sometimes makes me miserable.

When I want to learn something I ask different questions like:

Who has influenced you the most?

What ideas do you have about this?

Where do you go for help?

Why did you select that option?

When will you know?

How do you make decisions?

These questions help me know the other person better, learn successful tools and techniques, and allow the other person to shine.

Are you like a scientist? Can you be today?

What will you do with today?

What will You do with today?

What a question! What is your answer – or do you not yet know?

What is your intention for the week?

Ask yourself…

Do you realize that today is your day? To use, create, determine as you wish?

What will you do with this present?
