I don’t know if you’ve heard of Scott Ginsburg, but he is known for something very strange. As of today, he has worn a "Hello my name is..." tag for 3140 days. On one occasion he had given a speech to an employee group in South Dakota and told how he started wearing the name tag. "On that day, I exited an on-campus seminar and noticed everyone throwing their name tags away. So, I decided to leave mine on, just as an experiment. And for ONE day, the response was so overwhelming positive, that I decided to leave my name tag on permanently!"

He made a career out of wearing a name tag and working with businesses across the country. Following the training session in South Dakota a young guy approached Scott and chuckled, "Dude, isn’t it crazy to think that your entire career came from something you saw in a trashcan?"

Scott writes: "I never really thought of it like that. Which is kind of funny. I guess some people look into a trashcan and see trash. While other people look into a trashcan and see opportunity."

As he recounts this in his blog Scott asks his readers "What about you? When you look at the world...Do you see garbage? Or do you see gold? Do you see waste? Or do you see wealth? Do you see junk? Or do you see joy?"
