MedixMedix’s core purpose of positively impacting lives is everywhere within our organization, and we remind each other that the extra mile doesn’t need to be grand; it can be simple. In our fast-paced workdays, it’s easy to overlook the small opportunities to make another person’s day a little better. Let’s change this! Throughout the remainder of the week, I challenge all of you to see and act upon the everyday ways to positively impact a life:

  • Give up your seat: If you’re a commuter, and you see someone come on the full bus/train who is carrying something heavy, give that person your seat!
  • Pay it forward: In a long coffee line? Buy the coffee for the person behind you. You never know, you could start a long chain of paying it forward!
  • Smile and say hi: When you make eye contact with a passerby, smile and say hi. Simple acknowledgement can put a smile on his/her face in return.
  • Hold that door: Regardless of how rushed you are, if you see someone behind you, always hold the door! Trust me, it’ll take no more than a couple seconds.
  • Say thank you: Saying a heartfelt thanks to a teammate who has been there for you is one of the easiest ways to make someone’s day!
  • Reach out: Send an email, text or message or call a loved one who you have not talked to in a while. He/she would love to hear from you! 

Small gestures can make the biggest impact, so this week, start looking for these and other opportunities to make someone’s day better.
