So it’s no secret that I travel a lot. It’s actually a passion of mine; I am fascinated by being able to change time zones and go coast to coast all in one day (or a short 4.5 hr flight). I still say that one of my most memorable experiences was being able to see the sunrise over the Atlantic at Wrightsville Beach and then the sunset over Coronado at the Top of the Hyatt in downtown San Diego...all in the same day. But back to this miracle of flight….are you actually traveling if you don’t check into the airport on Facebook? I digress….
The other week I was on a flight home from a few days at Western Kentucky University and in Nashville. I had a really early flight from Nashville to Charlotte then Charlotte to Wilmington on that Monday morning. It was typical Monday morning and I was coming off from an amazing weekend spending time with the awesome trainers and instructors at WKU and some quality time with a few of my besties. I had no reason to not be 100% that morning but apparently the universe thought I needed a swift kick in the pants. As we landed in Charlotte and pulled up to the gate with a plane packed full of business travelers for the week, the gate agent walked on the plane and made an announcement over the plane PA system similar to this: “Good Morning and welcome to beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina. My name is XX and I will be assisting you in the gate today. American Airlines no longer prints your connecting gate on your boarding pass as it may change and this terminal is under construction so please excuse our mess. If you do have a connection and have questions please see me as you leave the jet bridge and I will help you. Lastly wherever your travels may take you today enjoy your day and most importantly, make your Monday great!”
It hit me like a ton of bricks. I thought to myself, “Universe, thanks for the reminder.” Make your Monday great was such a simple but impactful statement. I even close my voicemail out with “Make it a great day” however sometimes even us “pros” are in need a simple but not so subtle reminder that a small mindset shift can change our week.
