I’ve learned that you can do amazing things in only 60 seconds.
You can enlighten, inspire, or motivate someone. You can cheer them up or ease a burden. You can give them something they might need, and it just might be that single thing – a bit of information, an idea, help with something that before was overwhelming – that allows them to fulfill a dream and maybe turn their life around.
A minute is actually a substantial amount of time. (Sprint for just 60 seconds the next time you’re out for a run or bike ride, and you’ll see what I mean.) Set a timer, take a full minute and…………..
…find the phone numbers of three friends you haven’t spoken with in six months. And call them, rather than sending an email.
…go visit a relative that lives close by, but you never have the time to stop in.
…make a doctor’s appointment, if you haven’t had an annual checkup in more than a year.
It only takes 60 seconds to be kind – to others, to yourself, to everyone!
