Action for Better Community – Pay It Forward

on January 5, 2012

When I think about how we can change the world, I think about the little things we can do to make that difference. I’m not talking about donating your life savings or taking a year off from work and life to devote yourself to the starving children in Africa. While those would be really amazing ways to create change, those options are not practical for the vast majority of us. What is possible for everyone to do is to focus on their day to day activities. We interact with hundreds of people a day, whether we realize it or not, and it is time to put attention to those interactions. Acknowledge their presence, create a positive interaction and spark that change so the hundreds of people you run into will spread positive impacts to the hundreds of people they meet that day, too.

Here is a video that displays a great example on the impact of paying it forward. Watch it. Then do it.
