What can you offer the world that no one else can?
There are moments in my day that I can sit and watch our crew and marvel at the skill they bring to the job.
I received a negative comment today about hiring “kids” and it is really disgraceful when someone makes a comment like this because they underestimate the worth of every person they encounter. You can’t say this about teenagers and then command great respect for all humans you encounter… think about it.
Well…today I was out on our dock and (without making them nervous) I had an opportunity to watch our new boat drivers.
There’s a difference between driving and docking a boat — our crew members need excellent docking skills. Goodness, I’ve got some highly talented and great crew members this season. Today they were landing boats on our launching ramp docks in tandem. It was quite the site. Again, as I was “not watching” them so they wouldn’t get nervous. But I WAS watching and they’ve got skills!
My point is this… everyone has a talent. I hired these “first job” crew members because they could drive a boat. Many can drive the customer boats better than the actual owners. But the woman that had the negative comments about hiring “kids” simply doesn’t get it. OR maybe her great superpower is being crabby! haha But seriously… she’s quite good at spreading negativity.
Well… as I wrap this post up… what can YOU do better than anyone else?
Me? I can solve a Rubik’s Cube at the same time I can twirl a baton AND tap dance. Yep. I really can. I haven’t done it in a while, but I can.
I’m getting ready for an amazing week… how about you?
