The Motivational Power of Dunkin’ Donuts
The dogs and I usually roll into Dunkin’ Donuts at about 6:15, order at the mike, then drive over to the window to pay and get my coffee and their treats. This is ritual.
About 99% of the time, the staff on duty, who have to have been there since at least 5 am if not earlier, are cheerful and pleasant. On the occasions when I don’t have the dogs (driving back from working out), they always remark about my car. They can always change a hundred (CVS can’t).
The value of Dunkin’ goes beyond coffee and donuts. If these minimum wage employees can be so cheerful so early, I can certainly have the right attitude for the rest of the day given my life.
And so can you.
