KEYS FOR GETTING HIRED-KEY #4
To recap the last three entries: Key #1 is prepare to win, Key #2 is never stop learning, and Key #3 is believe in yourself, when no one else does, and Key #4 today is find a way to make a difference.
In Harvey B. Mackay's opinion, the majority of New York cabdrivers are unfriendly, it not downright rude. He says most of the cabs are filthy, and almost all of them pen you behind an impenetrable, bullet-proof partition. But, a while back he jumped into a cab at LaGuardia Airport and had quite a pleasant surprise � it was clean, had beautiful music playing, and no partition! "Hi, my name is Wally," said the driver as he handed back a mission statement! It said it would get him to his destination safely, courteously and on time. He offered a choice of newspapers to read, a choice of fruit from a basket on the back seat, and cellular phone. Shocked Mackay blurted out, "How long have you been practicing this?" The cabbie answered, "Three of four years." Then, not to pry but in sheer amazement Mackay went on to ask how much he earns in tips. The driver responded proudly, "Between $12,000 and $14,000 a year!"
Here was an incredible example of a person who found a way to make a difference. From Harvey B. Mackay's point of view, that's what it's all about. Prepare to win. Never stop learning. Believe in yourself, even when no else does. And, find a way to make a difference. If the New York cabbie could do it-so can you!
