RAK #181 – Donated my Time

without comments

RAK #181 – a company recently did some work for needed some immediate assistance with a marketing project, and I decided to help them at no charge.  Some have criticized me for continuing to do this kind of work for free, but for me, not everything is always about money.  Sometimes just being able to help is enough.

RAK #180 – Extra Tip for Delivery Guys

without comments

RAK #180 – we had some appliances delivered today, and the delivery guys took extra time being careful while removing the old items and bringing in the new ones, and also hooked everything up and tested it before they left.  We gave them a generous tip, and, seeing as it was their last delivery of the day, also gave them water and cold beer. Free Beer totally counts!

RAK #179 – Random RAKnotes at Work

without comments

RAK #179 – another old standby…I left some inspirational RAKnotes in random places for coworkers to find.  A few have caught on to my act, so now I am placing them in other buildings in our campus…more work for me, but I don’t mind, as long as it helps make someone’s day.

RAK #177 – Donated my Time

without comments

RAK #177 – this week I donated my time to help with a workplace activity centered around ‘healthy living’; my friends that own a disc golf store provided a working demonstration of the sport at my office, so I spent a few hours helping set up the equipment and instructing coworkers on how to play.  I think everyone had a great time learning something new, and gave me a chance to spend a few hours outside. Great day!

RAK #176 – Caught Up with a Good Friend

without comments

RAK #176 – we had a softball game that ended up being rained out, so during the delay I spent time with an old friend.  We talked about life, and got caught up on all the current events.  I also helped advise her with some life challenges, so the game rainout turned out to be a great thing.

That’s the awesome thing about life – you just never know what opportunities are going to present themselves, even under the guise of something negative.  Good reminder!

RAK #175 – Let a Friend Borrow my Stuff

without comments

RAK #175 – this was was easy; a friend asked if she could borrow my set of bases for a kickball game. How could I say no?  Ok, so it wasn’t random, but I’m still countin’ it!  Plus, I got a nice little note attached…totally worth it!

RAK #173 – Picked Up Trash

without comments

RAK #173 – I decided to pick up trash again in my neighborhood while walking the dogs…it’s disappointing to see all the litter than appear to be thrown out of cars or just dropped along the sidewalk, but it makes me feel better to be doing a small part to make my world better.

RAK #172 – Helped Clean Up

without comments

RAK #172 – this afternoon at my workplace,  I needed some project information from a coworker and found him in the middle of helping clean out an office filled with boxes.  I decided to help move the items while we discussed the project; I got the info I needed, and they finished the project faster.  Win/win for everyone, and such an easy way to help someone else.
