What Are You Doing For Others?

You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” – Coach John Wooden

I’ve found the day to be a success when I make it to the end of it, but how much of a success was it if I was unwilling or did not give something positive to someone else.

Although it is a difficult challenge when presented, we must always strive to be considerate of others. The profit of kindness dividends changes more than the one who receives, but the one who gives too. Even when they do not deserve your kindness it’s always best to give it, because your gesture may be the very thing that brings success to their day as it will your own.

So as frustrating it is to politely communicate with a negative, difficult or even sour or close-minded person I respectfully suggest you give it try. Before you know it you will find yourself with an unlikely friend instead of an assumed enemy.

At the center of the concept of considering others is “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

  1. All one has to do is little things
    Just holding a door open all giving a smile and a Hi to someone can help.
    I am in Costumer service. I can turn a persons day around by just helping them find an item in the store or by telling them on a tuesday to wait a day to buy something by telling them that it is going to be on sale the next day,
    It is just a little thing, but that is a way to do right for others

  2. Professor Tim,
    Excellent post …. life can be tough, yet we make it tougher. A coworker from years gone by would say … It doesn’t take that much more to be first class.
