“Making a mark, creating a good impression, is a personal task” #bgdtcoaching.
Let’s jump forward to the year 2214, our days are over yet perhaps our name is still spoken of fondly by folk near and far from our homeland. What is it you’d like to be remembered for?
Making a mark today, creating a good impression in this or that area of life could be a guide to how and for what we will be known, maybe not in 2214 but certainly in the near future.
Though we may not consider it very often, if at all, we are making an impression continuously on someone or other. Answering an e-mail promptly, a smile coupled with a cheery hello to the stressed barista, taking responsibility for our mistakes instead of hiding behind the tired excuse of ‘computer problems’, are all ways in which we are making a mark right now.
So, if you have an answer to how you’d like to be thought of in years to come, what actions today would be beneficial to making a mark in this way? Please feel free to share your input by leaving a comment below.
For now, thanks for reading this making a mark post.
Best wishes to you.
