Every Interaction is a Chance to Change Somebody’s World

Everybody is somebody’s somebody.

It all depends on what we see when we see people.

When we sit down on a bus next to a complete stranger, we have a choice. We can take the easy way out, crack open a book, put in our ear buds and disappear into ourselves.

Or we can say hello. We can notice people. We can create an act of connection in a moment of silence.

It doesn’t work every time, but we have a lot of times.

What’s neat is, once we have a chance encounter with a stranger that changes everything, we start to see strangers differently. Our posture changes. What we see when we see people isn’t what it used to be.

And that’s when the real fun begins.

Not because we see somebody as a mark, but because we view every interaction as a chance to change somebody’s world.

Maybe theirs, maybe ours, or maybe both.

How many people did you go out of your way to ignore last week?
