One of my favorite holidays that is really not celebrated any more is May Day – I had more fun putting flowers on peoples porches ringing the door bell and running.

“So what does that have to do with business?” you may ask. Well I have been thinking about how May Day can be resurrected, and I think one of the best ways may be with your business. When was the last time you gave your clients or employees a gift for no reason?

I challenge you to celebrate May Day this year by choosing a random day in May to surprise someone. Bring in lunch for the employees, send flowers to a client just because, or how about taking your accountant out for dinner (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)? You never know how much someone needs to know you appreciate them, so just surprise someone.
