It's time for you. Can't just stops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and Greens. After encountering hundreds of high achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reach your goals. And now for today's question. What simple acts can I do to pay it forward today? Well, with all the negativity on the news, you would think this world sucks. You might be right, but I like to think that it doesn't. I like to think that there are actually good people out there doing good things, and this whole idea of paying it forward is just proof of that. Right, I guess it's like be the change you want to see in the world.

If you want people that to do good things, I guess you have to, you know, be the example. You have to start. It has to start somewhere, and so today, you know, just look for some little things that you can do to pay it forward, to make somebody's Day. Brighter to help somebody out, give somebody helping hand. Recently, I won't go into the whole story, there's a long story, but recently my dad got into a little trouble. He had a situation and just some kind people, total strangers, stepped forward in that situation to help him out. That's the kind of thing I'm talking about. They expected nothing in return. They have no idea who he was, they have no idea who I am, I don't know who they are. Can't thank them, but they just stepped up to help out and do what they could. And you know, so just look for the little things that I mean. We've heard things like, you know, by somebody some starbucks, by them a coffee,...

...hold a door for someone. That's really easy and you know, I think, and it's sadly in this world we live in, I think that is unexpected anymore. I think that's a really low bar and crappy place to be. But when I hold the door for people nowadays, I get I don't know if strange looks, but surprised looks, like they're not expecting that. It's not normal and just as simple act of that, something even that simple, can brighten someone's Day, pay it forward, start moving the needle, and of course you know it could be something much more substantial. But it doesn't have to be crazy to get the ball moving. It just needs to be kind and without strings. So what are you going to do today? See You tomorrow.
