“Most people don’t notice I’m polite, which is sort of the point. I don’t look polite. I am big and droopy and need a haircut. No soul would associate me with watercress sandwiches. Still, every year or so someone takes me aside and says, you actually are weirdly polite, aren’t you? And I always thrill. They noticed.” Paul Ford

Sometimes you read words that come from the heart and connect you with others and the present moment as you experience the open and caring intent of the person who wrote them. How to be polite by Paul Ford is just such an article. Polite is a simple word to describe how to give others high quality attention and empathy. Do yourself a favour, switch off all notifications and read the article!
