Business is difficult, period. In the course of a day, a month or even a career we quickly learn that work has its benefits but also its stresses. Sometimes these stresses are overwhelming and it is only when someone is kind that we can take solace in them and be free to move forward.
I would like to think that kindness would be the norm, but alas it is not. Because we don't count on it, or often see it, we come to really appreciate it and take notice when we do experience it. And so my thought for today, indeed my directive, should you care to hear it, is to be kind everyday to everyone. You just never know what good that may do, and you may even find your own mindset is improved as well. Kindness is free and kindness gives all exposed to it a way to be happy. Without a thought you can be kind. It took me a while to learn this but now that I have it, I opt for it always.
