Who’s Job Is It?
I was recently in a medical facility that primarily serves children. The waiting area had many toys. The toys, I noticed, were dirty. Really dirty. The facility was by nature all about health and cleanliness. And it was not understaffed. The toys were not abandoned, in fact they were frequently used by both children and their attending parents. So why had no one cleaned the toys? Far too often we fail to put ourselves in the place of the people we serve. But if we do, we might notice things we typically take for granted. We might notice something that needs done but is “not our job.” Take a look around through the lens of others. If you see something that needs done and wonder who’s job it is, maybe it’s yours. Because you care.
