Recently, early one morning, I stopped by a retail store to pick up several items. As I was checking-out, the young man behind the counter asked with a smile, “what is the best thing that has happened to you today?” Frankly, I was taken aback by his question. As an Ai Practitioner, I am often the one asking others affirmative questions, such as the one he asked me, but at that moment, my mind was consumed with daily work responsibilities – emails to send, papers to review, calls to make, etc. His question was a pleasant disruption.
After a moment of reflection I offered a response that fostered a conversation. In turn, I invited him to share his best experience for the day. Thomas, the young cashier’s name, shared that he awoke each morning to write on a white board the “best of the best” which he would seek out each day and reflect upon each evening. Leaving the retail center I realized I had found my “best of the best” that day – as I had the privilege of meeting Thomas.
So, what is the best thing that has happened to you today?
