Recognise This! – Don’t wait to recognise someone if they deserve to be recognised today.

I live about two hours from Napa Valley.  When people hear that they tell me they’re jealous and ask how often I go wine tasting.  Umm…once?

ONCE?  In two years, you’ve only been once?  But you’re so close, why not go more often?  To which I reply, “That’s a very good question.”  So I had to think about it.  Why have I only been once?  Because, quite honestly, I know it’s there, it’s so close to me, I can go any time I want, so I’ll go nextweekend.  Or next month.  Ok, I’ll aim for January.  But then Napa was hit with a 6.1 earthquake and I was rocked to my core.  What happens if Napa Valley has another earthquake and falls into the ocean and I lived so close and never went and now barrels of really delicious wine is lost to me forever!

Are you maybe a little bit like this with your super-star employee?  You know she did a great job on the project this month.  And the project last month.   You can always count on her to do a good job.  You forgot to recognise her last month, and this month you don’t really have the time.  Be she’s gonna be around next week, so I’ll recognise her then.  Or next month.  Or…I’ll aim for January….
