Shining Star

When you were in grade school and you accomplished a task, chances are your teacher gave you a star on a board for the good work.

Gold stars were always my favorite, but it was always cool to get a star. Every time I got one, the harder I wanted to work in order to get another one.

As adults, we still strive to get the brass ring at the end of the task. Sometimes it is rewarding to just get an atta-boy or atta-girl for doing a great job. It shows that our co-workers appreciate our work.

Make someone's day and perform a random act of kindness, even if it is just recognizing them for a job well done for the day. It could be the shining star they need for the day.
