What are you going to do when you get to the coffee shop today to get your coffee and scone? What if you did something more than stuff your face with a delicious danish and up your intake of caffeine? If you are thinking about doing something more for the world when you do these little things, then you are thinking about things that lead to random acts of kindness. What if you bought the person behind you in line a cup of coffee in addition to your order? The cashier would certainly notice that you are being kind, and they might feel the need to share this with their coworkers or customers. Other people in the coffee shop might notice or overhear the conversations that take place during this, leading others to see kindness. Kindness spread quickly. The person who gets the free cup of coffee will likely feel a special appreciation that could lead them to other great things in their day.
