Extreme Kindness

Extreme Kindness

An amazing couple of weeks!

Here it is….

These last 2 weeks have been exciting ones.

Starting with an awesome interview on a radio show out of Memphis called “Talk about Service” with Ed Horrell. Ed is a switched on guy who is, as he astutely put it, is “drinking the same juice” as the Kindness Crew. I would have to agree. All the projects Ed is involved in seem to have pertinent applications for the practice of kindness. Take, his book for example: Kindness Revolution: The company wide culture shift that inspires customer service. Ed is a leader in the field of customer service and in this book looks at how, by using a culture of kindness and consideration a company can fundamentally change how the work with customers. He has a lot of great things to say about kindness in the business world and his sites have a lot of interesting material.

Check out his radio program here (our podcast is near the top)

And his personal website here.

The next inspiring event was a trip to Saltspring Island where Val and I had an refreshing, relaxing and rejuvenating brainstorming day with one of the founders of the Virtues Project, John Kavelin If you are not familiar with the project here is their vision and website link:

The Vision of The Virtues Project is to serve humanity by supporting the moral and spiritual development of people of all cultures, by helping them to remember who they really are and to live by their highest values.

This project is doing incredible things around the world. When you put a few focused people in a gorgeous house with great food and open minds the possibilities are endless. We explored several ways personally and professionally we could make the worlds a kinder and more connected place Val and I were both stoked to be get connected with all in attendance. Mover and shaker Amelia Pawlak from Pawlak Productions and Non Profit advisor extrodionaire Micqualyn Waldie from the Goldstream Salmon Enhancement Society (and about a 1000 of the non-profits) rounded out this fantastic five. Good ideas are brewing and the world is a better place for this meeting here are a few pictures…

Between the two of these events I was on a blissful vacation with the Gillies family in the East Kootneys where I spent relaxing, hanging with my girl, and soaking up lake life.
