“It scales better than competitiveness, frustration, pettiness, regret, revenge, merit (whatever that means) or apathy. Kindness ratchets up. It leads to more kindness. It can create trust and openness and truth and enthusiasm and patience and possibility.
Kindness, in one word, is a business model, an approach to strangers and a platform for growth.It might take more effort than you were hoping it would, but it’s worth it.”
Resurfacing this quote I posted in 2017. It’s so good.
Thank you for this reminder to bravely choose kindness.

Given all the things that understandably arouse anger in us — personally and politically — kindness is more than critical. I especially try to be kind at the end of an angry conversation, assuring the person I’ve been angry with that it’s not his/her fault, it’s the situation that’s beyond the control of both of us. Occasionally I’ve made the other person laugh.
