One Thing To Do


The reality is that doing good unto others actually does more good for you.
Richelle E. Goodrich

It is cold in Boston this particular morning as I start my rental car. The dashboard reveals a single and solitary digit of 1 degree Fahrenheit. Yes it is cold, but that one digit reminds me that each of us should accomplish ONE act of kindness each and every day.

Every day, every moment, we have an opportunity to do, say or attempt at least one good thing. It isn't a difficult task nor does it require intense planning. All that is required is the desire to leave others with something positive in their own lives.

... a smile ...
... holding open a door ...
... allowing another driver to enter the freeway in front of us ...

Each are small acts of kindness we can perform.

... buying someone a meal ...
... tip the waiter a little more than usual ...
... donating regularly to a charity ...

Each are greater but still easily accomplished acts of goodness.

The one thing you can do each day is to give it from your heart. No matter how small it may seem, when done from the heart it will have a huge impact on others. So create goodness in your daily life by creating one good thing in someone else's life.

Stay inspired my friends.
