1. Give compliments and admiration freely. Make sure they are genuine.
                                                                                                         21    District Governor Reception

3. Share hobbies and passions. Yes, sharing what’s important to you is a form of
generosity. Not everyone is brave enough, or thoughtful enough, to divert from
business as usual.                                                                                         This Week’s Birthdays

4. Discuss current events. Focusing on what’s happening in the world at large can
provide a welcome dose of perspective, as well as some connective tissue between                                         Birthdays
