First Impressions

Dear Uncommon Leaders, 

Are you all set for a new week? In this busy season, remember to embrace the little things that can make a big difference.

Have an uncommon week!

Your Sunday Nugget

This Week's Question:

How aware are you of the first impressions you make on others?

This Week's Challenge: 

I have had a bunch of experiences in the drive-thru lately where I’m greeted with, “Can I get a name?” That greeting doesn’t make the best first impression in my opinion. This week though, I had an experience where the person taking my order smiled and greeted me with an enthusiastic, “Good morning! That was a much better greeting and was the beginning of a great visit. First impressions matter!

This week your challenge is to be more aware of your greeting when you meet someone or see them again. Make it positive and cheerful and you might just improve someone’s day.

This Week's Quote to Ponder:

“First impressions never get a second chance.”  Chuck Swindoll

Until next week,
