Don't be so distracted by talking on your cell phone or so busy you're unable to share some cheer. We've got to start interacting and socializing with one another more often.
Here's a tip for those "passing by" moments.
Follow what I call the 10-5 rule for meeting and greeting.
If you make eye contact with someone within 10 feet of you, it's important that you at least acknowledge them with a nod or a smile.
At 5 feet, I suggest you say something-"Hello," or "Good morning".
That's pleasant, polite and simple enough. It really is nice to be nice!!
