“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” 

~Mother Teresa

It never ceases to amaze me that people continue to need to be reminded to be civil, kind and caring.  But they do – which means you probably need this reminder too.  Today, challenge yourself in every interaction to be intentionally kind.  While interacting with your families – i.e. look in your son’s eyes and say “Have I told you lately how glad I am that you’re my son?” While ordering your coffee at Starbucks – i.e. let that woman ahead of you in line who seems to be in such a rush.  While in a meeting with your subordinate, find something about their contribution to compliment them on.  Try it – the effort takes almost no additional time or effort but the impact will be priceless.
