Doing Things Differently

What do you do differently than most people in your position? What about your firm or company? Is there any practice, action, or policy that stands out as being unusual, out-of-the-box, or eyebrow-raising?

With Valentine's Day coming up, I'll point out something that is done in Japan for the holiday. Women in Japan give chocolate to their boyfriends and male friends on Valentine's Day. Men reciprocate a month later by gifting white chocolate on White Day.

Until recently, I assumed that every NFL team had cheerleaders. Apparently, the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, and the Pittsburgh Steelers don't have cheerleaders. Football without cheerleaders? That's definitely going against the norm.

So, if I give my wife white chocolate on March 14 in the name of Valentine's Day, do you think that will fly?
