As we move through the day-to-day, it can be easy to become lost in our own lives. The ups and downs, the curveballs and surprises, and our own needs.
With so much to deal with, it can be easy to forget that the lives of others are simultaneously happening around us, and that we have the ability to make an impact. Whether it’s a positive or negative one is a choice you get to make.
There’s a reason why professionals who show empathy excel in customer and client-facing roles and managers who show humility are more likely to retain their staff. It’s all rooted in kindness, and it’s never too late to put some effort into better the lives of others around us.
