Happy #WorldKindnessDay, November 13 
A global 24-hour celebration dedicated to paying-it-forward and focusing on the good.

 

Quick, think of a number between 1 and 10.
Got it?!
Now look at that pay-it-forward idea below and do it!

 

  1. Compliment the next three people you talk to today.
     
  2. Think of someone. Now, send them a positive text message. You’re amazing.
     
  3. Say hi to the person next to you on the elevator (elevators are so awkward, right?)
     
  4. Pay it Backward: Buy a coffee for the person behind you in line.
     
  5. Send a gratitude email to a coworker who deserves more recognition.
     
  6. Write your partner a list of things you love about them.
     
  7. Leave a note on someone’s car telling them how awesome they parked 
    Example: Hey you have a 4-Runner and didn’t park it in a compact car space. High five!
     
  8. Have a LinkedIn account? Write a recommendation for a coworker or connection.
     
  9. Tell someone they dropped a dollar (even though they didn’t) and give them a dollar.
     
  10. Set an alarm to go off on your phone at 3 different times today. In those moments, do an act of kindness for someone.
