Godin’s emotional hand washing
Just read this on marketing guru Seth Godin’s blog… A gentle reminder that by simply smiling and having a positive outlook makes a world of difference to those around you.
So, today, no matter how you feel enter each new conversation, meeting or event with a happier outlook try this for just one day and notice the difference it makes; to everything! ‘Emotional handwashing Emotions are far more contagious than any disease. A smile or a panic will spread through a group of people far faster than any virus ever could. When you walk into the office or a negotiation, then, wash your bad mood away before you see us. Don’t cough on us, don’t sneeze on us, sure, but don’t bring your grouchiness, your skepticism or your fear in here either. It might spread.’ Seth Godin
