This quote is familiar to many of us….from the 1983 movie Sudden Impact, starring Clint Eastwood as Harry Callahan. ‘Dirty Harry,’ as he’s called, is issuing it as a challenge.
I received another challenge today from one of my favorite authors: Andy Andrews.
In his blog post today, Andrews shares his thoughts on those special people who ‘make our day,’ just by doing the small things in a joyful way. The person who shines your shoes, the clerk at the grocery counter, the receptionist at your client’s office….or us, as we answer the phone. I remember a sign that was posted over a clerk’s head in a city office where I was meeting one day; “Be Nice, Because Nice is Important.”
The Epistle of Ephesians speaks to this in Eph 6:7 (The Message): “And work with a smile on your face, always keeping in mind that no matter who happens to be giving the orders, you’re really serving God.”
Here’s Andy’s story: http://bit.ly/1dXRnds
Hope you accept the challenge and recognize a joyful person in a surprising way today!
