Never Delay a Compliment

You pass someone on the street dressed sharply, the barista makes your latte perfectly, or that classmate's presentation was excellent. Times like those we may have a compliment pop into our minds only to think later, "I should have told them."

In an increasingly internal world, where our attention is less on those around us but whatever is glowing in pixels, let's try to spend compliments quickly and often. It can feel awkward and we may fear the compliment won't be taken well, but that doesn't matter. 

Everyone needs encouragement, proof that someone really sees them and their effort. Don't let the opportunity to pay a compliment pass you by.
