To Begin This New Year – Be Kind
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop
This week, I am celebrating completing ELEVEN years of blogging every business day on the topic of CPA firm management. Here’s an introduction I did on January 5, 2006 – my third blog post. Notice how many of the publications I recommended no longer exist.
My theme, behind all of the practical information I share, began in 2006 and will continue into 2017: Be kind and practice civility.
From his book, Choosing Civility, Pier Massimo Forni says:
“Civility means a great deal more than just being nice to one another. It is complex and encompasses learning how to connect successfully and live well with others, developing thoughtfulness, and fostering effective self-expression and communication. Civility includes courtesy, politeness, mutual respect, fairness, good manners, as well as a matter of good health.”
- "Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."
