A Simple Jesture=A HUGE Smile
So last Friday I left the office feeling kind of crappy. The moral on the sales team is awful. No surprise there as we are all being micro-managed. What was upsetting is that I got confirmation that one of the business development reps that I work very closely with is on a thirty-day performance plan; which basically means look for a job. Anybody who knows the consulting business knows that you just don’t turn things around in 30 days. In any event, I got home and saw that I had a box from Amazon.com. Since I normally ship my purchases to work, was kind of surprised to see the box. Then I opened and saw that it was a gift from one of my blog readers. Out of the blue, he had purchased a book off my wishlist. I was so overwhelmed by it all, I broke down in tears. It was such a kind gesture on his part. I never really expected any of my readers to buy me anything. I put up the list for family and friends who know me from the “real world.” Heck, it’s not even my birthday. So I thank you JAMES from the bottom of my heart. You brought a much needed smile to my face. I’m almost halfway through the book and I just love it. I’m quite grateful for the purchase. So sometime in the future, I’m going to do the same for another blogger…that is purchase an item off their wishlist…even when it’s not their birthday.
