Far too often, we reach out to smack out at others in an effort to make ourselves feel better about our own lives. It ain't right, but it's human, and Robert Sapolsky points out, it's downright primatal. So, on this Monday, as you go out and about into a world filled with people ready to do just that, stay your hand, stay that negative thought, that lip-curled sneer and smile at them. It'll surprise the hell out of em, and that can make you snicker and go on about your day, knowing you got to mess with someone, leaving them for the better.
And please check out Sapolsky; he is one of my all-time favorite speakers/lecturers.
