What if you were given a fresh, new pad of Post-it notes that came with a requirement?
Let’s pretend I just gave you a pad and the requirement is that you could only use the notes to pass out encouragement to others, whenever and wherever you can.
- How would you use them? Sign them or make them anonymous?
- Where would you use them? Leave them in the open or hide them to be found as a surprise another day?
- Who would you leave notes for? Obviously you have friends and family that could use some encouragement, but have you ever considered leaving encouragement for strangers – maybe on the bus, at the restaurant, while you are shopping, or at work? Why?? Well, maybe the stranger did or said something that you noticed and deserves a compliment. There could be any number of reasons, but the cool thing is you get to decide.
With all the negativity floating around in the world these days, it would be nice to spread some love and encourage people instead of tearing them down. What do you think?
Are you up to the challenge?
**NOTE** Comment what you would do, or who you would encourage in the comments below. OR, if you want, I would really like if you could take a photo of your notes and post them in the comments. Let’s build a “blog post of positive!”
