If you’ve read my blog at all, you know that I am passionate about design, social responsibility and my cat. Social responsibility takes many forms. The first thought that comes to mind is the environmental movement. However, for myself, it’s all encompassing. Just as I don’t want to produce excessive garbage for landfills to contend with, nor do I want to place negative baggage into the world.
I was a pet sitter for five years in a smallish rural community. I found there were a few things that could make or break my business. The top five were being reliable, trustworthy, communicative, respectful and friendly. These were the cornerstones to the growth of my business. You’ve probably noticed, all of the items on that list have to do with how we interact with and treat others.
I really believe that we attract what we put out. We can either inspire or squelch. We can draw people to do business with us or have them choose someone else. Much of the power is in our own hands. You can be the best artist in the world, but if you’re difficult to work with, I’m sure as heck not going to choose to work with or hire you.
I would like for this post to be one of inspiration and insight. A moment to reflect who we’re being in our world. If there are a lot of breakdowns showing up around you, look to see what the common denominator is. It’s my opinion that the more we care about others and strive to be good human beings, the more we make the world a better place to live, work and play.
