The book The Power of Nice is predicted on the idea that being nice isn’t so much a personality trait as it is a set of skills that anyone can learn and practice. I’m strongly inclined to agree with this idea because I know myself. Hopefully, I’m a fairly nice person much of the time, but I know that left to my own devices I’m really a rather selfish and self-centered person. Being nice is something we can all be, if we’ll just work at it a bit.
And on her blog, Mary C. McKitrick provides us with a wonderful story that illustrates this fact quite vividly. Read. Enjoy. As you do, you’ll be reminded that Mary herself is a mighty nice person. Then, while you’re thinking about it, pass it along. The niceness I mean.
