"Having A Ripple Effect"

 

Steve Hoffacker's Motivational Monday Photos + Inspiration

 

The poet John Donne said that "no man is an island." What we do impacts the lives of those around us - directly or indirectly. It's like a stone tossed into a pond that sends out ripples or this sky with clouds that seem to ripple out in all directions. We need to be consciously mindful of the effect we can have on people and strive to make their experiences with us good ones - no matter how brief. It can be as simple as a smile while passing on the sidewalk to someone that visits our sales center lokking for a new home. It's the same idea as "pass it on" or "pay it forward."
