In this podcast excerpt, Adam Nugent and Kate Strong talk about simple ways to spread kindness and positivity and share their personal goals for 2021.
KS: I’ve learned that even smiling at someone is really an act of service. Just looking at someone in the eyes, you know, since we’ve been in this world of masks. I’ve also noticed in my own life, it’s forced me to make eye contact with people and look at people. I feel like it’s harder for us to hide when we’re looking directly into someone’s eyes and making eye contact. So yeah, it’s an easy way to spread goodness and spread positivity. You can still tell when someone’s happy or sad under that mask.
AN: Kate, would you mind sharing a personal goal that you have for this year?
KS: My good friend, Courtney Brown at Cents of Style, she really is just brilliant. She does something where she comes up with a new word every year, just a word. So this year, my word is “expansion,” and that’s my personal goal—to expand.
So Adam, you tell me, what are some of your goals? I want to know what your goals are. Do you have a word, or is there something that you feel like you’re focusing on for 2021?
AN: I’m going to be saying “no” to a lot of things so I can be more intentional with my time—more present and have less chaos if you will, in my life. I want to be more engaged and see it all the way through.
