Catch Someone Doing the Right Thing

Recently during a stay at a Hilton hotel, I was struck by a slogan

on the customer comment cards: “Catch Someone Doing

the Right Thing!” Too often we only catch people doing the wrong

thing. Not because they never do the right thing, but because we

are more likely to speak out when something isn’t the way we like

it than when it is. We are more likely to speak out when things go

wrong than we are when things go right. We expect things to go

right, and we take them for granted when they do.

Think back to a time when someone caught you doing something

right. How did it make you feel? When was the last time you

caught someone doing something right and praised that person for

his or her efforts?

As we grow in emotional maturity, we realize that everyone

needs encouragement. When we shower our praise upon others,

we energize them. Whom will you energize with your praise today?
