How to Be Generous*

Share your passion with someone, anyone.

Put in your best effort.

Listen with your whole body.

Lend a book.

Pay an unexpected compliment.

Stick up for someone being put down.

Maintain eye contact.

Commit to your word.

Say “thank you” with specificity and sincerity.

Keep quiet.

Let go of a stale grudge.

Let someone know, “I see you”.

Start a ritual with someone you love.

Take the blame.

Say no.

Say yes.


*Not only generous, but generative.
