10. Be compassionate
The Dalai Lama said, “Compassion is a verb.” It’s an action, not a sentiment.
So don’t feel compassionate; be compassionate. Be kind and generous and respectful.
Every action is an opportunity to improve the world.
At the end of the day, most of us only have power over the people we personally interact with. Most of these interactions are neutral, but sometimes your words will make someone feel infinitely better or infinitely worse.
Aim for better.
