Default How a SMILE Helped Me Deal with 800 Employees

Thanks Gordon,

I had a job which I grew to hate.

Managing 800 Employees.

24/7 job.

Many of these folks HATED each other.

It got so bad I had a Weekly meeting with most of them.


Crazy, but this Reduced FIGHTS by 90%.

Plus I Got Janitors to VOLUNTEER to Test New cleaning Supplies. Then REPORT
BACK to the GROUP.

Had S*Alesmen as GUEST SPEAKERS.


To Get Myself in a Higher Energy.

HAPPY FRAME of Mind on the WAY to work.


SMILE - SMILE - SMILE for 15 Minutes While DRIVING.

It made all the difference.

Everyone Else was Doom and GLOOM.

Not a Little UNHappy.


PICTURE 800 EMPLOYEES Literally Racing Each other to be the FIRST
ONES Down The road on the way home.

But ME?

I was Chipper and Cheerful.

Streams of Problems and Trouble Just Rolled off me like water off a DUCKS BACK.

I - A kid took at ax. Cut holes in his Apartment walls so he could run
his Stereo wires from room to room.


II - Another IDIOT Used a Staple Gun to Nail a Parachute to his Dorm Celling
in concentric Circles.

ME? I SMILED while I wrote up the Bill.

III - Almost NIGHTLY - Some maROON in the boys dorm would KICK the water Fountain off the brick wall. Flood 3 Floors.

(I Set Up a Warehouse System.
Persuaded my boss to B*uy a Wet/Dry Vacuum. One Phone
call and I had a Janitor come out. Get the Wet/Dry Vac out of the warehouse. And Clean up the flood. I STAYED HOME.)

IV - Girls Heard GHOSTS - Demanded to be moved out of their Apartment.


I heard BIRDS in the wall.


I found Pigeons that had fallen from a hole in the Roof Soffet
down behind the Sheet Rock in the Kitchen wall.


Put on Gloves. GRABBED the Pigeons.


UNTIL I had my Marketing Biz
ready to JUMP over to.

Then I Quit.

TRY it.

Somehow a SMILE - on your FACE impacts Your EMOTIONS.

Simple but Really Powerful.
