Warning: Random Post! Then again, aren't they all?
This morning, I was craving doughnuts. So, I stopped by the Dunkin' Donuts next to my office. I was standing in line when a woman walked in. I instantly recognized her and called out her name. She looked at me with an i-have-no-idea-who-you-are face. Why would she remember me? The last time I saw her was SIX years ago when she was installing my office phone system. Yet, I could remember her full name and could recall it in a split second. This is pretty rare. I often have trouble remembering names of people I've met or places I've been.
She exclaimed, "Wow! You have a memory!" I confessed I really didn't. I concluded that, in that brief period of time when Mindy was installing our phone system, she made a lasting impression. She was such a sweet, sweet person.
I want to be more like that. I want to make positive impressions on people, even if I just meet them once. You never know when your paths might cross again.
