Reward small favors

"I owe you a drink"

That's what Richard Peterson said to me at the president's banquet at the association convention in Calgary. I was pleasantly surprised by his statement.

He reminded me that I had bought him a drink at this same event two years before in Halifax.

I had forgotten but clearly he had not.

The lesson for you is that small favors are remembered more than you might think.

At the same time - small slights are also remembered.

If it's going to be small - make it positive.
