I stumbled onto a video at Shoshana’s blog that gave me an idea. If you watch the video you’ll see that it is a commercial for an insurance company, but I like the overall message and it gives me an idea.
Here is my request for everyone who reads this post.
I’d like to ask that we all take a moment to help someone out. It doesn’t have to be someone you know, nor does it have to be a stranger. All I ask is that we each take an opportunity to do something nice for someone else.
A few examples/ideas from the video and my own thoughts:
- Hold the elevator door open.
- At Starbucks pay for a cup of coffee for the person behind you.
- Let that guy on the freeway on-ramp get ahead of you.
This is all kind of spur of the moment impulse, but just for the heck of it, let’s try it. Let’s see if we can’t make a few people smile and help to improve the world around us.
If you feel like it you can blog about this or leave a comment about what you did. Let me know what you think.
