It’s Not Always About the Goal, Sometimes the Journey Is More Important
I ran my first workshop to two friends in their living room. It was pretty bad. I apologized throughout: “I’m sorry this is so bad!” My hands shook, and I fumbled my words. But a year later, when I’d run a series of successful workshops, I was glad I decided to do that first workshop from my friend’s couch. I was grateful I’d taken the risk, and given it a go because I pushed through the awkward stage in order to get to the good part. (more…)
I’ve become addicted to random acts of kindness that I do during my work day. There’s no loser. Everyone wins.
Random acts of kindness are the best way to get out of a bad mood and lift your spirits. You can also do the same for someone else simultaneously. It’s a two for one baby!
From this day forward, we shall do one of these bad boys listed below. We’re going to change the world one random act of kindness each per day. Imagine that! Better yet, join me in making it happen.
1. Play roulette with kindness.
Craft an email to someone full of kindness. Treat it like Roulette. Pick a random victim from your list of contacts in your phone or even someone you work with.
Write them an email about how they’ve influenced your life, inspired you or displayed a characteristic you respect. Use real examples and mean what you say. Don’t be afraid to include some emotion in your email as well.
Sending random notes of kindness is a habit worth practicing and it’s guaranteed to WOW.
2. Answer an unsolicited email.
We’ve all had them. The cold outreach. Someone you’ve never met who wants to tell you something or pitch an idea. Try responding to one once in a while. I typically choose random emails from countries far away from my own.
These little conversations back and forth can tell you so much about another culture. Many of these cold emailers never think they are going to get a response.
They deal with so much rejection and your one reply in a thousand rejected emails is a beautiful act of kindness. The same works with telemarketers too.
3. Help an elderly person with their groceries.
We’re all going to get old one day and see what it feels like when every physical movement hurts. While you’re at the grocery store, help an elderly person who’s struggling with their groceries.
Carry them out to the car for them. It only takes a few minutes but it shows respect to the generations that came before us.
4. Give a compliment.
“You look refreshed today”
“Love your t-shirt chief. Where did you get it from?”
“Mate I wish I had muscles that good. What’s your secret?”
Compliments only work if they are genuine. Find something about every person you meet that you admire. Don’t keep it to yourself – share it!
5. Inspire someone who is a little down.
Dude next to me got fired. I told him how much I thought of him and how I could see him doing much bigger things in life. That belief from someone else made him feel good. It cost me zero.
6. Make someone laugh.
Today I told an audience about how funny my fear of blood tests is. I demonstrated it live using all the horrible looks I have on my face as the nurse takes my blood. People laughed and we all felt fab.
Poke fun at yourself once in a while – it’s the best way to make people laugh.
7. Offer an introduction.
One of the young folk I worked with was looking for a new job. I told him I could introduce him to a few companies. The prospect of some outside help made him smile. It takes two seconds to make an intro. This small kind act could completely change someone’s business or career.
8. Let someone in when you’re driving.
It’s such a small gesture yet it’s an act of kindness that you can do anytime you’re driving. It’s an easy way to get some runs on the kindness scoreboard and build a strong foundation of random kindness into your day.
9. Buy everyone coffee.
What’s it cost? A few bucks? Who doesn’t love a hot drink?
Coffee is a small gesture that packs a powerful punch – pardon the pun. You don’t need to gift a Ferrari to show someone kindness. I’ve found the smaller pleasures in life actually have more of a lasting effect.
“It’s not the act of kindness you choose but your intention that matters”
10. Pay for the persons lunch in front of you.
Another small treat that shows the world strangers care.
Force someone in a business negotiation to commit to kindness.
I did a business deal last week and afterwards, I informed both parties that I’d be requiring one act of kindness from them. I told them that the “ask” would come sometime this year and that they better be prepared. By this point, it was too late for them to say no.
The prospect of doing something in the future that’s unknown and displays kindness is nearly impossible to say no to. It brings a bit of excitement to all involved and it’s a must if you want to do business with me.
“Add random acts of kindness to all of your contracts!!!”
11. Hold the elevator.
Next time you see someone running for the elevator, put your hand in front of the sensor so they can get in. If you’re feeling really bold, strike up a conversation with them. Are a few extra seconds in the elevator really going to mess up your super productive life?
12. Volunteer at the local homeless shelter.
They can always do with the help. Seeing people who have nothing and listening to them can help bring them social interaction. I’ve learned this is much more powerful than any material item or even money.
13. Send flowers to a woman.
Pick a woman in your life and send flowers to their workplace. Tell them how much they mean to you and write how they’ve made a difference to you.
If you’re trying to do this for a bloke then maybe send them a “Random Slab Of Beer?”
That’s what blokes like don’t they? I have no idea. I’m a vegetarian with an eye for herbal tea, so I am probably not the best one to advise.
I’ve given you lots of random acts of kindness to try. These acts are all about showing yourself what you can do when you go beyond just you and your own selfish desires.
Do I do these every day? Nope. Some days I forget or I am in a bad mood which distracts me. The aim here is not to be perfect. Have a go.
There will be days when you’re kinder than others. The trick is to try them as regularly as you can. After a while, you’ll find yourself being kind without even thinking about it.
The habit of implementing random acts of kindness into your day can make you see a different side of life. Random acts of kindness help you see the bright side.

There is nothing wrong in setting a goal in life in order to help manifest your vision of yourself years from now. These goals serve as a challenge so you will push yourself to do better. The only problem is when you become too obsessed with the bigger picture and you tend to forget the small details. You end up stressing out on how to get to the end that you no longer enjoy the process. (more…)
