The maintenance man told me to use egg and milk in my hair… WHAT???
I live in a student hostel.
Every 3-4 weeks, the drain in my bathroom gets clogged.
I clean it as much as I can, but there’s always something inside that chokes the drain.
Then, I request the maintenance officer to help me clean it.
Each time he checks it and finds entangled hair, he says, “You should apply egg and milk to your hair to reduce hair fall…”
The first time he said that, I was taken aback.
Now I just start laughing inside.
Because now I realise: he’s trying to solve my problem from the root (pun intended.)
Yes, he’s helping me with a solution to my problem
He’s showing me how to avoid the problem in the first place!
That’s something to learn from and be thankful for.
Be it unclogging the drain, shopping, commuting, closing deals… take an extra step to help others out.
Do beyond what others ask you for.
You will be remembered very fondly for it.
And you will feel nice too!
So, what extra steps will you take to help others?
P.S. You feel alive to the degree that you feel you can help others.
