Goodwill Hunting...

 

It appears I’m on a bit of a goodwill crusade this morning. I hope it’s not going to be the case of EK’s Final Repose?;-)

 

It’s a colleague’s birthday today, and I offered lunch for her; secondly, I provided an ear for a temp cleaner, who is more qualified than the cleaning and tidying up she has been contracted to do for the month.

 

As luck would have it, a friend-cum-acquaintance who has just landed a job as manager in the same industry as this temp is in, is keen to speak to her. I gave him her number. Initially, I was so darn attracted to this young lady: she’s cute; dynamic; smart and a bit of a looker. I decided to transform any potential lust into doing something positive—and it sure feels good. She’s not cut out for this cleaning and tidying up, and in talking to her, though she had accepted the situation stoically, she was keen to move on to better things.

 

Thirdly, I have facilitated an exchange between a colleague of mine, and an emerging friend who was dismayed for not having been invited to a press conference we organised yesterday. I brought some degree of reconciliation, and so each should be talking to each other…

 

Finally, I followed up on a concern an intern here was having; and he was glad for the concern.

 

Oh, and I bought a huge loaf of bread for my taxi-man.

 

I am most definitely no angel—please—but I don’t know why there are period like this when one just feels like doing “good”, and then some.

 

Ofcourse, it’s all perception, but the philosopher tell us that even doing good is a selfish act, because it makes us feel better.

 

That’s probably right. What do you think?

Enjoy your day!;-)

Maybe it is a selfish act, but then again maybe it will promote more acts of goodwill by other people.
