It's much easier to say YES than No
I wrote the little blurb below right after I got off a SKYPE call on Jan 15th 2013 and wanted to share it with you. I also filmed a video to go hand and hand with what I wrote below. I think it is worth a quick read and listen.
I just got a skype message from a Jr High teacher in West Virginia asking if at some point I could skype with her class. She wasn’t expecting me to say sure lets do it right now lol.
I will tell you, i am very busy with so many things at the moment both personal (who isn’t) and professional but there is always time to stop and breath and do something nice.
Do you know it would have been much harder to say NO than to say YES? A simple yes means no excuses, not much thinking and just go with the flow.
We got right on SKYPE and each kid asked a question or two. It was really cool and well worth taking a few minutes from my day to hopefully bring a smile to someones face.
After the call I was sitting here thinking and pretty much teared up. The reason being is its still strange to me that people look up to me for what I do. The fact that me taking those 10 minutes could have a positive impact on someone got to me. It could put a smile on someones face who on any other day may have been upset. That to me is what is cool, you never know the effect you have on others.
It is much easier to say yes than no, no one is to busy to take a few minutes to do something positive.
