 I love people who show initiative and go the extra mile!

Did you notice that so many people are just doing the bare minimum to get by? I especially notice this in the work place. People only doing what they have been asked and not going that extra mile.   And you know who suffers? Everyone! Your co workers, your clients and even you!

First let me tell you why I used this picture! I have an aide at a school who made this to house all of her materials! She went the extra mile to keep her work site neat, tidy and easy to use for herself and her clients! Great job Michelle!! LOVE IT!
Let me tell you why its good to show some initiative and go the extra mile...

1. Your clients! They can see when you are doing a good job and are showing some passion for what you do! If you portray enthusiasm and passion for what you are doing (when working with clients) your clients will do better and make more progress! They will also be happier to come and see you because it will be more fun! It is a lot easier to work with kids who are happy, having fun and excited to see you!

2. Your coworkers! When you work hard and go the extra mile it can set a precedence in your office or setting. Other people will see that you are doing things that you haven't been asked to do and do it happily. They will then start going above and beyond for your employer and clients! You know the old saying, one bad apple can spoil the bunch...? It is definitely true of lazy co-workers and bad attitudes! I have worked with people who rarely do their share of the workload and it goes unnoticed by employers. FRUSTRATING! But you know who always notices? The clients! And guess who they tell? Your employer! So just do a little bit extra... it will come back to you like a slingshot! I always think, if I was receiving this service what would I want? Then I do that. And you feel better knowing you have done a good job, regardless of what others around have (or have not) done. You have to live with your conscience :)

3. YOU! You, again, feel better knowing you have done a good job! You have the satisfaction of doing something altruistic- the right thing just for the sake of doing the right thing! 

Altruism or selflessness is the principle or practice of concern for the welfare of others. It is a traditional virtue in many cultures and a core aspect of various religious traditions and secular worldviews, though the concept of "others" toward whom concern should be directed can vary among cultures and religions.

This is how I try to run my business, Creating Communicators. I have re-vamped services to meet needs of schools and varying budgets. I am providing services to areas who have been unable to afford services in the past or are so far away professionals have been unwilling to come to their site! 

What can you do today that is going the extra mile for your clients?

Have a great day, sincerely!
