Sadly, that’s an opportunity that some of us let go by.
It’s easy to focus your attention on yourself. Maybe you’re late for work and you forget to thank the Starbucks barista who made your drink. Or maybe you arrive at work and you skip the greetings and go straight to your office because it’s going to be a stressful day.

My guest on this Five Minute Friday, Lee Cockerell, wants to tell you how impactful it is to recognize the importance of the people around you. And trust me, he’s got the experience.
