Hi, Curt. It's always good to read another way to look at being nice to someone.

I've been thumbing through a new book, The Power of Nice, and one of the pieces of advice is to see yourself as others do -- as a supporting actor in their movie, not a leading actor in your own. Aks yourself what kind of character you'd play in their movie, and think about how tomake your character more sympathetic.

I thought that was a fresh perspective -- sort of taking the idea in your post one more step.

One important lesson for me was to realize that the more I actually and genuinely tried to help others...without regard for myself, NO quid pro quo, and no expectation of one...it seemed I became more aware of others, too. Good comment by Penelope,too.
