President's Message March 2004
As I wake early each morning to go to work, I realize
that today is going to be a great. What does a great day mean to me?
It means the opportunity to help other people. It can be as simple as
just saying good morning to everyone I meet, or saying something nice
to them and maybe getting them to smile. In my job as a computer specialist,
people often call me and preface their questions with something like,
“I am sorry to bother you.” I always answer in the same
tone, “I am here to help you.” It means being as a pleasant
as I can to everyone that day. I received an email this week about a
man who was always positive and cheerful, almost to the point where
people were annoyed at him for being too cheerful. The man said that
“I get to make choices every day. I can choose to be cheerful
or not. I can choose how I react to any given situation.” This
man had a serious accident and when people visited him in the hospital,
he was still the same cheerful person he had always been.
