I’ve started to make positive observations about what I see.
Because, as I’ve found, comments that I thought were minor and silly actually mean the world to others.
“I really like your coat.”
“The music in here is great. Did you pick it?”
“I see you all the time. How long have you worked here?”
“You’re always so helpful.”
These are all statements I chose not to say before, but now I say them. And you know what? It starts conversations! It gets me known as a regular in places. It shows people that I’m curious, that I actually care about them and how they are feeling.
It shouldn’t be creepy. Don’t say, “Hey, I like that you wore that one ring on your left index finger and now you have it on your right middle finger….hahhhh.” That would be awkward…
Just make simple, positive statements about others.
If something is intriguing to you, it’s probably important to someone else.
Give it a try today.
You never know what might happen next.
What do you think? Is this something you would do? Have you done it? How has it worked for you?
