I started reading a book my mom has, "212 The Extra Degree," and wanted to share 2 paragraphs...
"As a friend- Choose to visit or talk with one extra friend each week and create 52 additional discussions among friends for the year. Do something helpful and unexpected for one friend each week of the year and plant more than 50 additional possibilities of influence."
"As a parent- Wake and act each day with the understanding that your actions will be absorbed by your children... and your children will grow to be contributing adults to the level of your influence. Add an extra 15 minutes each day to the time you invest with your children- an equivalent of more than 2 weeks each year at work. Imagine the exponentially positive effect of investing 2 extra weeks each year exclusively in the development of your children."
"212 The Extra Degree" is about how to live successfully. It has beautiful photography with amazing positive inspirational quotes throughout the book. We sometimes get caught up in every day things and don't realize our behaviors and how they are affecting others.
So, reach out and touch someone today and spend an extra 15 minutes of undivided attention with your loved ones.
Hope you have a great day!
