Defaulting to nice

Watching a guy on the train this morning have a small coughing fit without covering his mouth, I realised how easy it is for humans to spew their germs, infections and shit all over the place for everyone to catch.

In fact, it's easier than easy. As I saw this morning it can be completely involuntary.

And so it goes each and every time we moan, bitch about someone behind their back, call people names, spread lies, vitriol and hate. It's easy.

With the same amount of effort we could share a compliment, an idea to solve a problem, a story, a piece of much-needed advice.

Imagine how great the world could be if we defaulted to nice.
