Planning Out Your Random Acts of Kindness

Saladmaster Wants You to Be a Force for Good

One of the easiest ways to feel better is to do something kind for someone else. While large gestures can make a huge impact, such as donating your time and money to a nonprofit, small gestures can make a huge difference in a person’s day without requiring much effort on your part. Imagine the collective impact if more people decide to focus on lifting up others! We can be a force for good simply by getting in the habit of being kind.

Random acts of kindness still require some intentionality and forethought. We have to commit to kindness and create a plan. Start with a checklist of random acts of kindness that you feel comfortable doing. Then set a goal for checking these items off your list. Start small. Maybe only one act a day for an entire month? Once it becomes a habit, you might expand the list or increase your kind acts.

Two Types of People

Two Types of People

Carol Dweck’s research sheds light on something we’ve all observed. Some people just see the challenges that they face differently. It’s not a matter of ignoring the obstacles in front of them with some sort of blind optimism — or denying the effort it requires to be successful. Instead, these people embrace the challenge with an “I can learn anything to get where I need to go” attitude.
