"We all appreciate the small and not-so-small kindnesses offered to us, however too often we neglect the small ways in which we can extend kindness to those very people. How much better this world could be if we followed Howard’s lead to let people know when they have made our day! I’d like to buy a case of this book to leave around town in the hopes that some people could up their kindness and expressions of appreciation a notch just to remind people how easy it is to make someone’s day!"
Behind the story
Making someone's day is how I live my life. My greatest joy is when I'm able to inspire others and make their day whether it's a simple act like being the first to sign a petition or more involved like rebuilding homes after Hurricane Katrina. I've seen how it works as a manager and leader unleashing the talents of people to do their best. And I've studied the neuroscience behind it and created a simple model to put it into use.
