Be Nice (Anyway)

I received numerous emails regarding yesterday’s blog post about being nice to people who are not nice to you. Most of the responses said the same thing—“this is really going to be a challenge for me.”

I know it is not easy. One thing that gets lost in the servant leadership/kumbaya lingo is that there are some really mean people in this world and for many of them; their sole purpose is to annoy you.

The question of the millennium (or history of the world) seems to be: How do you deal with people like this? The answer: “…do good to them that hate you.”

What about you? How are you going to deal with people who are not nice to you?

Tip: Make sure it is legally and morally right. J
