Recently I had a discussion with some business leaders regarding our language and how it affects our state of mind and attitude. Specifically, we talked about the answer to the most common question in America, “How are you doing?” The typical response, “Fine. How are you?” doesn’t do much to boost our attitude or outlook on our day.
We started brainstorming alternative and positive answers such as:
“Terrific!” ~ “I am unbelievable” ~ “If I was doing any better I’d be twins” ~ “If I was doing any better, vitamins would be taking ME!” (my personal all time favorite)
Here is my challenge to you: I want to know YOUR best response to the questions “How are you doing?” Post your answers below. I will review all of the submission and choose the winners on Thursday, March 27, 2008.
Here are the prizes:
First Place – Freedom Personal Development hooded sweatshirt
Second Place – Freedom Personal Development water bottle
Third Place – Freedom Personal Development mouse pad
Winners will be contacted by email and the winning submissions will be posted on the blog March 27. Bonus points given if you actually start USING your response!
