This week is my 2 year business anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, I wanted to create a special image using my table numbers. To represent this second anniversary, I chose a gold tone oval #2.
I took a photo. But thought the gold tone oval looked too lonely. I found myself asking, “what else can I add to make this even better?” I added a glass doorknob with the blue license plate #2. That felt better but my instinct was it still needed more. I added some blue books to connect with the blue number. Took the next photo but I still wasn’t satisfied. It needed something more. I added in an extra doorknob to create a bit of sparkle. That is the life of a maximizer! Always looking for how to take something that is good and make it excellent.
According to StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath, “Excellence, not average, is a maximizer’s measure. Transforming something strong into something superb is thrilling.” Two years into the creation of Dish and Décor Vintage Rental and I continue to be thrilled with helping others turn a special event into an extraordinary occasion. All pieces used in this photo are available for hire!
I bet I am not the only one with Maximizer qualities. Are you a Maximizer and what profession are you in?
