Daniel’s cause: Kindness

Any responsible business person supports charities and other organizations designed to help better the world, and Daniel is no different. Here, though, we’d like to focus on one cause that everyone can get behind, and that costs absolutely nothing to participate in: Kindness

From a smile to a stranger who could be having a tough day, to doing small things that make someone’s life easier, keeping kindness top of mind is not only good for your fellow human being, but it’s good for your soul.

Here are a few small examples of everyday kindness I’ve picked up over the years that you can incorporate into your daily lives. If you have other ideas, please send them in through our contact form and I’ll add them here. I’m eager for this list to grow!
  • Tip in cash.

  • When you fly, give the flight attendants candy when you board (a bag of those individually wrapped Lindor truffles you get at the drugstore seems to be a favorite!).

  • Write positive reviews that mention specific people when you have a good experience. People are far, far more likely to complain than compliment.

  • At a hotel, tip housekeeping daily, and gather your used towels in the sink so your housekeeper doesn’t have to bend over to pick them up.

  • If you’re in a booth at a restaurant, pass your used dishes and glassware over and stack silverware on your plates to help your busser out.

  • Tell someone’s boss they’re doing a good job.
