If you want to get One Grip Higher take of the stickers!
Monday, I walked into work on cloud nine. My beautiful baby had just slept 4 straight hours (new record) the night before and I was feeling rested. I was excited to be at work and my first few meetings were going really well. About 11 am, someone commented that they liked my pants. I expressed my gratitude, and mentioned that they were new and in fact it was the first time I had worn them. The person responded with, “I know!” and a slight roll of the eyes. Their was an awkward pause, and then it was pointed out the the “34×34” sticker was still on the pant leg. This was not a small little sticker. This was a long blue sticker that was in stark contrast to the greyish color of the pants. Why did it take until my third meeting for someone to point this out? Humbled.
- Mirror Check: Check yourself in the mirror every day regardless of how good you feel.
- Honest Friends: Make sure you have people in your life who will tell you when you left the sticker on your pants, have food in your teeth or let your zipper fall down.
- Do It Right Away: Take the stickers off at the store.
- Communication Barrier: No one hears what you say if your have a stupid sticker on your pants.
