During the 2019 TEDx program in Detroit, co-organizer Terry Bean briefly took the stage. In the allotted few minutes he shared this one big idea: We all have the ability to cast a positive stone, creating ripples that benefit others.
In addition, he also shared these eight ideas for casting positive stones.
Hold the door for someone;
Celebrate important milestones with the people you love;
Smile, or better yet, make someone else smile;
Lend an ear by being there for those who need you;
Shine the light on people doing excellent work;
Pay it forward with something as simple as buying someone a cup of coffee;
Connect the people you know with the people they need to know; and,
Bean’s list is not just a simple one; it’s also a list of little things that you can do each and every day to create positive ripples in the world.
