We can get all too focused on our high performance journey and miss the opportunity to step beyond ourselves and do something nice for someone, known or unknown. Once we get it in our head that we can step into this opportunity and surprise someone we can set out on a path to do exactly that. It can be simple as a hug, or bigger, like an offer to help with some hard stuff. As we get deeper and deeper into this part of the journey, we realize that surprising someone (in a good way) is rewarding, meaningful, and giving all at the same time. It is the kind of place that once we find it, we want to spend time there. The return for each of us is big and it serves as a reminder that we can make a difference – one person or one idea at a time.
