Never Take Anything for Granted
As a waiter if a table says their food is good check back later and see if they are still enjoying the meal by saying something like , everybody doing okay here??
In fact I would go so far as to say anything you have in your life right now never take it for granted. Because it could be all gone tomorrow. Be thankful and each day try to give extraordinary service in your craft , whatever it is.
Be grateful that we are able to do what we do. Giving service to others.
Be genuine and show people you care about them which starts off by being friendly toward others.
I know as a waiter I can make a mistake but by showing genuine empathy and friendliness toward that person they will show forgiveness back to you.
The successful human being is not someone who knows and does everything close to perfection but is one who can win over people on sincerity.
