Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 40

Today’s giving: Brought in a pack of ping pong balls for the office table.

If you’re in line at the supermarket and there’s a mother struggling with her toddler trying to put groceries on the conveyor belt, giving her a kind word is nice. But offering to help her put the groceries on the belt is so much more helpful. Even if she says ‘No thanks,’ you at least have a conversation starter.

If you see your neighbor carrying in groceries and your hands are free, offer to help. Even if he says ‘No thanks,’ you at least have a conversation starter.

An offer to help is as good as a kind word.

You might even get an opportunity to hit the ball.

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
