  1. Be extremely proactive. Be kind to those around you with no expectations of reward. Do this with random acts of kindness and make positive, kind choices with all the people with whom you interact throughout your day. This can be a simple “thank you” or being gracious.
  2. Value kindness and make it one of your core values. When you value kindness, you will change the lens through which you view the world. When you make kindness one of your core values, it becomes a compass for all your decisions.
  3. Acknowledge kindness. By acknowledging kindness in others, you strengthen your ability to be kind, even in a high-pressured, stressful and rapidly changing environment.
