With the weekend here, many of us will share a meal out or buy a takeaway. This is a great opportunity to value to the staff who serve you. Read more to find out today’s challenge.

Act 22: Valued

Today, a guaranteed way of making a difference. Talk up a service staff member. It’s such an easy chance to make a difference in someone’s day – but ask any service staff member, and you’ll hear how rarely it happens. Don’t let fear of insincerity put you off. A simple ‘You’re amazing, thank you for that!’ goes a long way when it’s well meant.  

 Choose how you’ll complete today’s act:
‘Thanks for that. That really helped.’ ‘How’s your shift? People treating you well today?’ ‘You’re doing a great job, keep it up!’ Drop a sincere thank you on a bus driver or till assistant (or steal one of the above).

Go online – Yelp, Trip Advisor, or something similar – and leave a positive review for a local business.

Get the name of someone who’s doing a great job, then find the email for customer service (most businesses have them online). Let the business know how great they were, or go into the business and tell the manager about them.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves…”
(Philippians 2:3 NIV)
