I admit. I’m a quote fan and junky!
Great applicable quotes often keep me inspired when hints of feeling down or even depressed feelings start to rear their heinous head.
And … Of course, I forget most great quotes I’ve heard before the end of the day. : (
HOWEVER, THIS ONE WAS DIFFERENT. I’VE SINCE LISTENED TO IT NO LESS THAN 50 TIMES!
Yes, it may be just where I am and what Jeff needed…
AND I’m suspicious you may need to hear this today.
It comes from the mid 20th century radio personality, author and inspirational icon, Earl Nightingale.
“Treat everyone with whom you come in contact as the most important person on earth. Start this habit, practice it consistently, and you’ll do it – and benefit from it – for the rest of your life.”
Read it again…
Imagine what the world would be like if everyone considered what they could do for others before considering what they could do for themselves??
Nightingale understands something most of us don’t take time to pause in our hectic schedules or urge to get stuff done.
People (including us!) have a deep and lasting yearning.
· To be needed…
· To feel important.
· To be recognized and appreciated for what we do…
(Even if we’re slightly messed up… more than slightly!)
This includes our spouses and other family members, business partners, employees, clients, and delivery people.
So, I asked “AI” (Artificial Intelligence)
“What would be the implications for a company that treated employees this way?”
“MR AI” (“Artificial Intelligence) spit out:
A company that wholeheartedly embraces Earl Nightingale's saying and actively implements it in their organizational culture would experience several positive implications.
Positive Workplace Environment:
Enhanced Customer Experience:
Improved Teamwork and Collaboration:
Increased Innovation and Creativity:
Strong Employer Branding:
Personal and Professional Growth:
“In summary, a company that wholeheartedly embraces the philosophy of treating everyone as the most important person on earth creates a positive, inclusive, and thriving organizational culture.”
IN OTHER WORDS. CHANGE THIS ONE APPROACH IN A CULTURE… AND GO TO NEW LEVELS!
This approach leads to
· Increased employee satisfaction,
· Customer loyalty, teamwork,
· Overall business success.
Ultimately, it creates a ripple effect that extends beyond the company, positively impacting employees' lives, customer experiences, and the broader community.”
Who teaches that in business school? SHOULDN’T THEY?
What are the personal benefits of living this way “MR. AI?”
Here’s what “MR AI” said when I asked for the impact personally for a person who decided to live out this quote! AGAIN, even an “artificial intelligence” sees it as a dynamite stick of transformation!
Increased Empathy and Compassion:
Personal Growth and Self-Reflection:
Positive Influence and Impact:
Enhanced Communication Skills:
Cultivation of Gratitude and Positivity:
Here’s the Conclusion as written by “MR. AI!”
"Embracing Earl Nightingale's wisdom and treating everyone we encounter as the most important person on earth has far-reaching implications.
It elevates the human experience, fostering genuine connections, empathy, and compassion. By recognizing the inherent worth of others and uplifting them, we simultaneously embark on a transformative journey of personal growth."
What if... you joined me in embracing this powerful practice wholeheartedly, knowing that it has the potential to shape your life, your company and the lives of others for the better, leaving an indelible mark on the world?
