Introduce Yourself

It’s easy to say hello to people we frequently pass or see in our neighborhood during our daily routines. But how many times have you said hello or carried on a conversation with a neighbor, a store clerk, or person in line with you without ever getting around to exchanging names?

I have one neighbor that always waves and says hello to me. It’s been almost a year since I first met him while he was washing his car. He’s a good man to know. There is just one little problem – I don’t know his name. It’s been said that the sweetest sound to a person’s ears is the sound of their name.

Why haven’t I asked him?

This weekend take an extra step and introduce yourself. Sharing your name is easy and makes your exchange more personal and friendly. You’ll go away with a big smile and a new friend in your neighborhood.
