On a flight to Dallas on Southwest Airlines, I observed  an off duty flight attendant, who was on personal travel, assist a passenger in opening a stuck luggage compartment.  No one knew she worked for Southwest until she identified herself.  I certainly was impressed and I'm sure other passengers were too with this attendants willingness to go the extra mile in her off time.

Sometimes  to go up or lead others up, we have to BACK UP.  That has been a hard one for me because so many times I think I need to have the next thing to do lined up, perfected, and ready to go. I grew up hearing don't just sit around, do something.  However, I have learned that when I'm sitting I am doing something.  I didn't have a bigger and better newsletter when I chose to stop writing my previous newsletter.  Yet, I knew I needed to  pause, reflect, and re-evaluate my business strategy and how the newsletter would fit.  Only then could ideas open up to create a newsletter that would provide greater value to you.  Is there some activity that you need to back up from doing?
