Weekly Resolution 1/18/10

In honor of Martin Luther King Day, the consummate kind man, my resolution this week is to be more kind to others.

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" - Martin Luther King, Jr

All of us are struggling to get through the world, especially these days. For some it's more intense of a struggle than for others. The tragedy happening in Haiti is the ultimate struggle, and we are collectively banding together to offer some help. The cell phone text campaign by The Red Cross just hit $20million in relief funds, a true testament to our ability to be kind to others.

At least once a day, do something that helps someone else. Help a stranger pack their groceries into the car. Help a colleague figure out a difficult problem. Critique a resume for a friend who is looking for a job. Help a family member with a project at home. Donate $10 from your cell phone to help the victims in Haiti.

Whatever it is, even for just a few minutes, do something helpful each day.

What's your experience? Jim.

  1. I went to the bank today to make a deposit, and there were no pens to use for filling out the form. So I left 3 pens there for anyone else coming in today. :) Jim.
