The Article I Wanted to Write

By Timothy B. Smith ·

Anyone who follows me on Twitter, has emailed with me or maybe chatted for a couple minutes at an event knows that I’m a pretty approachable person. What’s surprising to me is that kindness is a standout characteristic in a person. Shouldn’t it be the default?

This is the article I’ve been wanting to write. I just couldn’t express it the right way. Brad does a great job of explaining that there are three ways to be a big deal:

  1. Be kind
  2. Help people
  3. Repeat

I couldn’t agree more. Like Justin Mezzell and I talked about on The East Wing, we need more voices like this within our community. We need positive voices—not one’s with empty compliments—but with sincere positivity, and constructive criticism.

Read the article. It’s a good read.
