Go First

  • Smile first.
  • Do the work first.
  • Say hello first.
  • Research first.
  • Take care of your health first.
  • Invite first.
  • Hold out your hand first.
  • Put your client first.
  • Offer value first.

Inspired by this quote:

I always say that I’ll go first. And so that means if I’m checking out at the store, I’ll say hello first. If I’m coming across somebody and make eye contact, I’ll smile first. If people would experiment with that in their life a little bit, be first, because – not all times, but most times it comes in your favor. (…) you have to go first because now we’re being trained in this world, nobody’s going first anymore.
