Nine small kindnesses

“Kindness is free,” Tom Peters tells us in his book, “The Little BIG Things.” It’s also unlimited. So let’s spend some kindness!

Here are some small kindnesses that are free and easy to do. And if we do them often enough, we won’t even have to think about them.

Anywhere, anytime:
* Make eye-contact and smile.
* Remember people’s names… and their spouse’s and children’s names too.
* Say “thank you.”

At work:
* Let a car enter the lane in front of you. Wave if someone let’s you into the lane.
* If you’re sitting at your desk, stand up when someone greets you.
* Call a customer – even if there isn’t a problem – and especially if there is a problem.

At home:
* Praise everyone at least once a day.
* Ask your family questions – and listen.
* Swallow a criticism or complaint.

Has an everyday kindness made your life a little brighter? How do everyday kindnesses affect you?
