The surest way to get ahead is to be kind.
Not because it is easy, it is incredibly difficult most of the time. Not because it is immediate, in fact it is mainly long term. Not because it is tangible, it’s mostly about practice and belief. Not because it is popular, there are not many business books who praise kindness over hustle. Not because it is visible, mostly it is about standing in the back of the stage.
But because it is contagious.
Kindness spreads, and if you start pouring some around, everyone will be better off.
Starting with you.
