It just takes a little initiative

Lakeville Police DeptIt’s Independence Day here in the US, it always amazes me how much a community can do, and how quickly it can be done.

On Wednesday I spent, with 4 others, 2.5 hours “beautifying” our local police department. They’re in an old building which desperately needs updating and is basically drab. Not at all suited for the beautiful town.

A local business owner put out a jar asking for donations, asked another business to do the same and made some phone calls. The end result?

A piece of drab concrete in front of the Department got a facelift, the building got window boxes with flowers and we decked it out for the 4th.

All because of a little initiative.

Why am I sharing this?

Because whether in business or life, it doesn’t take much to make a real difference:

• Focus
• Initiative
• Community

And when you combine the above, you achieve success.
