What a huge weekend! Wifey and I spent four days bringing her new toy back from Queensland. Her name is Candy, a 1965 Mustang Coupe and this is what she looks like.
Not bad for a 45 year old! (Candy, not wifey!)
Unfortunately, due to a miscalculation and an “interesting” fuel gauge, we ran out of fuel on the Hume!! I got the job of walking back to the servo while Wifey stayed with Candy. After 15 minutes of walking a car pulled over and the guy said, “My wife is with your wife and the 20 litre petrol I had in the boot”. It was a fabulous thing to hear!
About 100 vehicles had driven past. Our car was obviously not going anywhere, wifey was resting on the boot waiting, so why did he stop when no one else did? He was the only one to ask himself the question “What can I do?” Everyone else could see we needed help but they took no action.
What about you? What signs or signals have you seen that you KNOW you need to act on but haven’t? Team members that need help, family members that need assistance, sales figures not being met, strangers that want the paper you have just finished with, projects that need attention – you KNOW what they need.
Take the action and reap the reward!
Lovin’ your work!
