A Drop in the Bucket

How full is your bucket.jpg

You might have heard of it in Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton’s book, How Full is Your Bucket? Positive Strategies for Work and Life. And it’s true: We work better when our buckets are full.

How do we fill them? Put a drop in someone else’s bucket. A little good deed a day can go a very long way.

  • Point out something positive that someone on your team did that day.

  • Offer an honest compliment.

  • Share a smile.

  • Help someone out on a small task that makes their life a bit easier.

  • Offer an ear, give someone your full attention and listen without distraction.

  • Give unexpectedly, and without being asked.
