1 Activity To Do

Each day this week…

Begin your day by greeting friends, family and colleagues with a genuine smile and a positive, encouraging message. Throughout the day, actively engage in uplifting conversations, express appreciation for their efforts, and offer words of motivation and support.

Radiate positive energy, and inspire those around you to approach their work with enthusiasm and to contribute to a more energized and productive work and home environment.

At the end of the day – capture at least 3 occasions where you have been a ‘radiator’

1 Question For You

Ask yourself…

What do I value in myself and others that I am drawn to that provides nourishment and allows me to be a ‘radiator’ of energy and not a ‘hoover’?

1 Idea To Consider

Most of us think of friendship as a single category.

Friends may be closer or more casual, but a friend is a friend. But that’s apparently not how Aristotle thought about friendship. He broke friendship down into three subtypes: utility-based, pleasure-based, and character-based friendships.

“Each arises from what is valued in the friend: their usefulness, the pleasure of their company, or their good character,” explains Katz.

Friends whom you value for their good character — for the essence of who they are — are the most valuable, but these friendships also take the most time to cultivate.

Modern science backs that up — it takes a tremendous number of hours to make a true friend.

“Since time is a limited resource, most friendships will be based on pleasure or utility,” Katz underlines.

Consider your friendships this week!
