快樂製造機(3)

我想與大家分享第二個快樂製造機的故事。AL 參加了我在學學的私塾後,決定嘗試自己的快樂製造機。這是AL與我的email對話。

Dear 朱平老師

我在台中開了個『養生銀行』,現在已經有二家分行,我每天最開心的事,就是聽到小朋友大聲的喊,這裡有牛ㄟ,有魚ㄟ(我們有個小牛的雕像和一個魚 池)。那天,我也做了個實驗,我自己換了100元零錢,只要是來結帳的客人在掏零錢的時候,我就用這些零錢先幫他支付,客人可以還我,也可以不還。我想知 道 一天下來,我會比100元多,還是少於100元,你猜到結果嗎?

嘿嘿!我最後結算2,586 元,(扣除我的100元)

有20個客人說『不用找了』,有18個客人說『不好意思,我給你』,更有趣的是,32位客人說,『下次來再給你』,當然也有說『謝謝』的客人。我向那說『不用找了』的客人說,我幫你存了『快樂基金』,他們開心的離開。

我打算繼續實驗下去,一個月後再告訴大家我有多少快樂基金!

謝謝您給我這個實驗的發想,我很快樂!

Dear AL
You made my day by not only being a Daymaker but also a Ripplemaker. This is the best story that I’ve heard in a long time. I am in complete bliss now. I salute you for being such an inventive doer.

Please remember that I am not your teacher. I am your peer. I am so privileged to get to know you all. I challenge you all to find your own way to start this ripple effect based on the law of 1%.

May I use your story for my next ICB and my blog so more people can be reached by your ripplemaking? You will have a happy life by being a Daymaker everyday. Your business will also thrive with positive energy you cultivate. I am so proud of you.

Be the change and give love.

  1. 親愛的朱先生:

    看到您部落格裡寫到AL的分享真是感動
    好像彷彿看到那部電影—“讓愛傳出去”的感覺
    快樂製造機不斷地Forword出去
    在這美好的清晨
    我要對著太陽大聲地說:
    世界上有朱先生 有AL真好 有吳金津真好 呵呵

    讓我們繼續像太陽一樣不斷地把愛把快樂Forword出去吧!

    朱先生謝謝您(親)

    吳金津敬上

  2. Dear 金津:

    Yes, it is people like you and Al that will bring the sunshine to us. You are all ripplemakers. This daymaking ripple will have no boundary and one day will become a big wave. Actually, I just want to find a way to take the advantage of what makes Taiwan Taiwan. Taiwan is the best kept secret in the world. I have known many foreign friends who simply love Taiwan for Taiwan people’s kindness. I want the world to know that Taiwan is such a unique place. 快樂製造機 will become the engine to put Taiwan back on the world map and become one of the must visit destinations.

  3. 親愛的朱先生,
    謝謝你與我們分享Daymaker的概念!
    我想跟你分享一個小故事。
    上禮拜我在科技公司的辦公室茶水間做了一個小實驗:
    我將漣漪卡放在一個佈置好的格子裡,邀請幾一兩位同事抽卡片。

    一開始有幾個人很喜歡,所以就繼續邀請更多人來抽漣漪卡。
    好像漣漪效應一樣,到了下午,茶水間竟然從原本死氣沈沈的倒水間變成同事們擁有互動機會的小角落。

    辦公室中增添不少樂趣,好像也讓大家的工作精神更好了!

    我會繼續在生活中練習實踐Daymaker的概念!這真是太有趣了!

  4. 親愛的朱先生!你好!
    我熱愛T恤,也愛設計T恤的圖案,有感於棉花的農藥使用量實在是太恐怖,如果要搞一個有機棉T的品牌,讓有機棉更親近大眾,像uniclo那樣的路線,我應該從何做起?要注意些什麼呢?
    (我有mail請教您,可沒收到回信,所以在此發問,叨擾了!)

  5. Dear Artpeace:

    I really don’t know too much about the T-shirt business. I only know that fashion business is a logistic business, not just the design business. You need to find the solution for your inventory control and be very good with contract manufacturers and distribution. Please walk through Prada, Gucci or Theory, Zara store to find the T-shirt that has unique cutting and detailing work. Please do not get into the commodity t-shirt business with the organic cotton as the only point of difference. If you can produce an organic cotton T-shirt with special cut and texture, I would like to buy one from you. I also don’t think it is good idea to get into the mass market with T-shirt made with organic cottom. You need to fid your uniqueness so you can build a brand based on this unqizue offering. You also need to ask someone who has a T-shirt store and ask their story.

  6. Dear Michelle:

    What an uplifting story! You are very creative and very thoughtful to transform water cooler place to an interactive place. It is your abundance mentality that cause this new reality. It is this selfless act that will jump start the positive emotion in people. This is what I called the simple pleasure that we all can create for our friends and ourselves. I will share this lovely story with the creator of the RippleCards. Please visist http://www.ripplecards.com and share this amazing kind gesture with the positive outcome. You made a lot of people’s day by offering RippleCards.

    You are one of a kind.

    Let’s start this quiet “kind revolution”.

    Love,

  7. 今天買午餐的時後,我突然想到快樂製造機的故事
    老闆說95元
    我拿出了100元
    但是
    我竟然沒有勇氣告訴他,我願意付100元!!

    心中忖度了老闆所有可能的回應
    一句很簡單的話, 到了我的喉嚨卻卡住
    硬生生吞了下去

  8. Dear Apple:

    You are so cute. I simly love this story of yours.

    It is perfect alright. You just need to practice more.

    Now, you have a new goal. Please be mindful and you will realize that you have the power to choose to be happy by being someone’s daymaker too.

    You made my day today.

  9. dear ping chu:
    自從聽到你倡導的daymaker概念後
    一直也想親自試試看
    現在機會來了
    我有一位好友 一位非常純真 善良的朋友
    他的父親得了癌症 而且是末期
    現在的我 非常想為他做些事情
    但是除了去探訪他之外 還有些什麼事情能為他做呢
    可以請你提供些意見給我嗎 謝謝

  10. Dear Allen:

    I am so happy that you are reaching out and seeking advice to be a daymaker to your best friend and his terminally ill father. You are a good friend indeed.

    I will assume that your friend’s father knows about his condition already.

    Be a daymaker to your best friend:

    Buy him books on how to deal with death. I will recommend Chasing Daylight by Eugene O’ Kelly

    http://www.books.com.tw/exep/prod/booksfile.php?item=0010333605

    Tuesday with Morrie by Mitch Albom

    http://www.books.com.tw/exep/prod/booksfile.php?item=F010004844

    Please help him to have a positive mindset. We can mourn the loss but we should never dwell on things that we cannot control.

    Encourage him to talk about his fun memories with his father.

    Write hand written letter to him and mail to him about how lucky you are to have a friend like him.

    Treat him to a Day Spa experience at Canmeng Aveda

    Help him to clean up his home and buy grocery to fill up his refrigerator.

    Take turn to care for his father for him.

    Arrange surprise party with his other friends or colleague to show your support and friendship.

    Hug him and let him know he is not alone. Sometimes, a small kindness gesture is better than words.

    Be prepared for his emotion swing. Don’t be scared by his sudden rude behavior.

    Give him time and space.

    Bring home cooked meals to him or his father.

    Death is the most natural thing in the world. We all die sooner or late, so we need to live in the moment and cherish the friendship and love we already had.

    Hopes and dreams are the essence to live a life with higher purpose.

    Be a daymaker to you friend’s father;

    Offer hand massage to his feet or back. Facial massage is a powerful one too.

    Offer skin moisture to his face. Bring his favorite hairstylist or your hairstylist to the bed side and give him a make over. Yes, even dye his hair if he always had his hair dyed.

    Document his fun memories of your friends. Ask him how he got to know his wife, what three messages he would like to give you, is there any regret he has and want you to avoid….

    Volunteer to contact his old friends and offer your help to orgainze a good bye gathering with his friends.

    Took some photos of laughing and happy moment.

    Rent a wheelchair friendly van to take him around Taipei or his old neighoborhood, workplace, beach to see the sun rise and sun set.

    Read poems or help him to write letters to his future grand children or even his son after he has gone.

    Help him to write in Chinese caligraphy with brush and ink so your friend can have something to keep for the future generation.

    I regret that I was too ignorant when my father was in terminal cancer. I only did a few things I mentioned above. I regret that I did not do enough.

    I am asking my readers to contribute on this subject:

    How to console someone who has lost the love one? or how to console someone who is dying?

    We, Chinese, are really bad at this due to the conventional wisdom of not mentioning death in front of our dying loved ones.

    Please let me know your thoughts on what I said above.

    Be my daymaker today.

    Ping

  11. You are my daymaker too. Mr. Ping Chu, Thank you!

    Unfortunately, when I saw your message, my friend’s father had already gone.

    However, when I saw my friend, I still try to encourage him. I wrote a handwritten letter to him. We had a lunch together, talking about the past memories about his father and the friendship of ours.

    He was not happy, but he looks brave. I can’t even imagine when I lost my father. He taught me lots of things. I appreciate him.

    When I saw your message, I am very happy too. That was really surprised me.

    Recently, I heard a great album which called 東清村三號. The singer is 陳建年. Here’s the website of the music video: http://pl.youtube.com/watch?v=0jK2BaHNNTo

    Please hear this unpolluted sound, it’s great. Mayber I can be your daymaker too.

    My English is not good. Please don’t mind.

    Thank you!!

  12. Dear Allen:

    Your English is very good. Please keep finding time to practice English writing. I am impressed. I am sorry to know your friend’s father passed away. Thank you for being a Daymaker to your friend. You are doing the right thing to write him a hand written letters and let him to share his fun memories with his father.

    You did make my day by introducing this new song to me. Now, i feel much more connected to you through this song sharing.

    Please continue the daymaker momovement.

  13. 看到這篇我真的快哭了,
    別人的快樂就是自己得到的快樂,
    這是一種感動,
    雖然社會的現實,但保持著愛與和平,
    會發現還有好多好多溫柔的人
    謝謝你

  14. Dear 妤雯:

    Thank you for your kind word. You are the reason that I started this blog. I always believe that we can create our own destiny. By choosing to be a daymaker, you are taking back the control of being a happy person.

    Happiness is a choice. Happiness exists in action.

    Now, you have a homework: Please make someone’s day today and share your story with us here.

    Be inspire, Get involved, Take action.
