We took our grandson to the Atlanta Braves baseball game this past Saturday night. A close family friend, who was in DC, saw us on television and sent us this picture during the game. It made my think about that saying to always be on your best behavior because you never know who is watching you. My grandmother also told us to always have on clean underwear because you never know when you might have to go to the hospital. (I never understood that one until recently, but it became a saying that I also told our kids.)
The reason I bring it up is, in this age of social media, smart phones, and instant connectivity, a week doesn't go by in which we see someone behaving badly. Perhaps when they didn't think--or sometimes care if they are in positions of power--if others were watching. Conversely, I got my biggest breaks both professionally and personally because someone liked what they saw in me when I didn't know they were watching. (Now, there have been times that I acted a fool, but that is for another blog.)
So, always be on your best behavior at work and play because someone is watching you, and you don't want an opportunity to pass you by because you aren't putting your best foot forward.
