Excellence in Metal Detecting

I just read a book titled The Fred Factor, by Mark Sanborn. The book is an inspirational little book about delivering superior service for the sakes of delivering superior service.

One of the things Mr. Sanborn suggests is to find a way to deliver superior service every day, even in the smallest of ways. So I started to think about something I do often where I could do just that. Then it hit me, I metal detect often. I love my hobby so I thought there is no better time to apply the principles of the book.

So, as the book asks, I identified my customer. The way I see it, my customer is the public who shares the parks and other public spaces where I metal detect. Having identified the customer, the task at which I would want to excel is digging a plug and restoring the ground once I am done retrieving the target. In this way, the other users of the park will never be inconvenienced in any way because of what I do. So for 2015 I vow to absolutely master how I retrieve a target from the ground when metal detecting.

The other thing that I thought about is to clean the park as I go. I have done this in the past in a very modest scale but I think in 2015 I will up my efforts to pick trash as I detect.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and any other holiday you may celebrate this season.

About pulltabMiner

I like metal detecting and playing the ukulele. I am a better metal detectorist than I am a uke player. I also like doing things with my two sons like fishing, biking, and otherwise goofing around. In the past I have grown vegetables with great success but since we got the big dog, nothing lives in my yard that he decides should not. Occasionally, the drawing bug bites me and I draw with pencil and ink. I've dabbled in foreign languages and my latest obsession is mining and trading cryptocurrencies. I think of myself as a well rounded nerd.
