Thanks, Doorman

A good doorman:

  • Greets people he knows he knows.
  • Helps strangers with no hesitation.
  • Asks “How was your day?” to anyone who might want to be asked.
  • Smiles.
  • Appreciates his job.
  • Appreciates you.
  • Moves around during work.
  • Talks with hand gestures.
  • Lends a hand.
  • Keeps secrets.
  • Talks to the mailman.
  • Likes dogs.
  • Dresses well.
  • Laughs a lot.
  • Shows patience.
  • Plays on your team.
  • Cares.

Alas, not all doormen are good doormen.

Might as well lead by example.
