This is the second of three articles I am writing about the recent CNN piece, with my notes below.
The following are excerpts from that piece:
“He sets at least four alarms each day to remind him to think about others and what he can do to spread kindness. Small gestures can help folks get into the habit of being kind, he says.” “If you want to say a prayer, or a moment of silence,” he says, that’s what you should do. “Whatever you need to do to honor someone.”
It is so easy to get caught up living life, that we often don’t remember goals we have set for ourselves. Most of us have phones that we can set daily alarms which remind us of something uniquely important to us. I have four daily alarms that remind me of the following:
7:11AM – Get up and help to make the world a better place.
12:34PM – Try to help as many people as I possibly can today
3:43PM – I have a moment of silence to honor the 343 Firefighters and 72 Law Enforcement who lost their lives on September 11th.
5:55PM – Embrace gratitude. Give back, at the very least, as much as you have been given.
