What if we could make the world a little brighter… a little happier… one person at a time? I subscribe to a magazine called Live Happy:
Live Happy magazine is serious about happiness.
Weaving the science of positive psychology through inspiring features, relatable stories, and sage advice, we help people discover their personal journey of happiness in life, at work and at home.
I was on their website last week because I heard about the International Day of Happiness, which falls on March 20 this year. They have issued a challenge—the #HappyActs Challenge—to see how many “happy acts” we can complete by the International Day of Happiness. A happy act might be offering to mow your neighbor’s lawn, running some errands for an elderly person, complimenting a coworker, or paying for the order of the person behind you in the coffee shop line.
In the parking industry, we all have opportunities to brighten someone’s day. Exceptional customer service can go a long way to ease a driver’s perceived pain of paying for parking or receiving a parking ticket, etc. Smile when you speak to your customer. Send a handwritten thank-you note to the person who took your meeting. Hand out a gift card for a cup of coffee when issuing that parking permit.
Live Happy will donate a dollar to Big Brothers Big Sisters for every person who accepts the #HappyActs challenge by clicking through and signing up. (As if you needed more incentive to do something awesome!) You’re encouraged to share your #HappyActs on social media! Spread the smiles!!
