Nike used to have a slogan Just Do It. This is where my slogan begins.

Have you ever held the door open for someone and the person didn't even acknowledge you were there, much less say thank you? Then you ask yourself, why did I even bother?

How about if you are driving in traffic and you can tell someone is trying to get into your lane even though they are not using their indicator and you let them in, and you don't receive even the slightest hand-gesture that would indicate a thank you? And you ask yourself, why did I bother?

Well my dear reader, my slogan is Just do it anyway.

Doing the right thing does not require instant reward or gratification from the person the good deed was done upon. Doing the right thing should be done because it is the right thing to do.

So whether or not a person acknowledges you for doing something nice for them, just do it anyway.

Make someone's day and perform a random act of kindness. Don't worry about whether or not they say thank you. Just do it anyway.
