Just Ask

I wish that Mind Reading 101 were a class taught in life. I would not want to know what everyone is thinking all the time like on Gilligan's Island when Gilligan started eating some indigenous seeds on the island and then can magically read everyone's mind. Just once in a blue moon, it would be nice to know what is going on in someone else's head.

Since we can't read other people's minds, we are just going to have to ask them what is on their mind or ask them to do things.

So, here is the reason that I actually started blogging about this topic this morning. I say that people in general are good and do good things. If you want someone to do something for you, they probably can't read your mind, so you need to ask them to do it. If the task that you are asking them to do does not put them too far out and does not cost them financial hardship, they will generally do it for you. The worst that could happen is the person will tell you no - if people tell you no, do not be offended, because this was the worst that would happen.

Make someone's day and perform a random act of kindness. It could be as simple as doing something for someone when the person asks.
