For those of you who missed from before, this comes from an office I used to work at in San Diego. It started before I arrived. It was a tradition and had been for months if not years before me. Every week, at the company weekly meeting, the end of the meeting was all about “the bucket”. What would happen is we would start with important announcements and reminders, go into a featured speaker for the week (usually an escrow company, title company, inspection company…whoever could bring free food – LOL). And at the end of the meeting was bucket time. During bucket time, you would state, “I want to fill someone’s bucket…” and then you would thank or acknowledge or compliment someone else in the office.
Knowing that we are all deletion creatures, this makes perfect sense. Make the last thing from the meeting, the thought that will stay with them the most from the meeting, make that a positive thought. You just never know how that positive thought may just make someone’s week go entirely different.
Candy Stevens – Candy is fairly new to us here at AR. She specializes in accounting and has a background in helping folks resolve tax challenges. Seeing as how I saw she lives about 90 minutes from me, I offered to help her get up to speed. Well, boy did Candy ever get up to speed. I see her blogging frequently, posting comments on other people’s posts and attending the AR calls regularly. If you haven’t been following Candy yet, make sure you add her to your list. She is really extending herself to become a valuable member of the AR family.
Kathleen Daniels – Kathleen caught me completely off guard by bringing up one of my recent posts on the real estate market for 2021. She mentioned a few aspects of my posts that showed me how closely she paid attention to it. She really made me feel special. Thank you for your shout out, Kathleen!
Each week, I will fill more buckets. I hope you will too!
