How much do you care?

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Leo Buscaglia

We never know the impact we have on another persons life.  The littlest things can matter the most.  When I read the quote above it jumped out that all of those things demonstrate care and concern for another human being.  Showing that we care can change somebodies world.  We don’t know what anyone else is truly going through and how we can impact their lives by demonstrating care.  We might never know, and that is okay because to live an intentional life of caring is our greatest calling.

  1. I’ve actually had a one word answer when asked to provide the key to a successful team who would run through a brick wall if needed. Care. The little things matter very often and when a leader in an org takes 5 or 10 minutes or simply says thank you, the impact is much greater than the effort. Emotional bank accounts are key.
