What's On Your "To Do" List?

Do you ever get so caught up in the busyness of your day that you forget to take that extra second to be nice to the people around you?  It's so easy to forget!  Well, I found this list of "Do's" the other day and it's been a good reminder to help me be more mindful of those around me.  I thought I'd share my new "to do" list with you!

                                      My "to do" list...

1. Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word or greeting. If possible, reply to texts, tweets, and status comments. It is as if this person is standing in front of us speaking and we ignore what they say when we don’t respond.

2. Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, but only 14 to smile!

3. Call people by name. The sweetest music to anyone’s ear is the sound of his or her own name. Look at the name tag of the person waiting on you and thank them by name!

4. Be friendly and helpful. Jesus told us to love one another...being friendly is a great way to start new friendships!

5. Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do were a real pleasure.

6. Be genuinely interested in people. Each woman you meet has a story.

7. Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

8. Be considerate of the feelings of others. It will be appreciated.

9. Be thoughtful of the opinions of others. Be respectful.

10. Be alert to give service. What counts most in life is what we do for others!
