I don't like to make new years resolutions but I do want to make sure that my year is bigger and better than the previous year.
What I have decided to do this year is to say Hello more often. It is something so simple but I think will be quite effective.
What's the worst that could happen? Someone won't say hello back? Or that someone will look at you but won't say it back. It's one small little word, I think I could suck it up.
So why say hello?
- I started a new job recently and find it quite hard to break through and talk to people. (The work culture here is get in, do your work, work through your lunch break and leave on time to ensure work-life balance). I also appreciate my work-life balance but I always think there is time to get to know people and be more than co-workers.
- You never know who you will meet! My friendship circle is open and always happy to meet others.
- Give me extra confidence. I'm shy when it comes to meeting people I don't know.
