so here's something you can do to be a better server today in times of stress, to best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as their answers. That quote comes from Mr Fred Rogers, who was one of the most caring people and attentive listeners that this world has ever known. My wife says that I have a habit of getting comfortable with people very quickly, which at times can be a good and bad thing depending on the circumstance. However, most of the time I think that extroverted personalities can create some great moments to serve. Everybody has their own baggage and problems that they are wrestling with on a day to day basis. Some people are really good at keeping their issues under wraps, while others tend to let them sit at the forefront of their mind and stress about them as people. We're not meant to go through life alone. We were created to help one another and carry their burdens. Just asking someone how their day is going can allow for our great moment to serve. If it's your customer, your coworker, family, or your neighbor. Just remember, like Mr Rogers said, in times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.
