Today, your mission is:
Take time to teach someone else a skill that you know.
A well known proverb states that “If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime.”
Giving and teaching are both valiant acts of kindness.
But, there is something magical about teaching. When you teach, you give something beyond a transient material “thing”. Flowers, money, toys…those things go away. Knowledge. Knowledge is something that stays and grows and expands.
Through teaching, you give a piece of yourself. You plant a seed of love and kindness in someone else, which can grow and expand and spread.

What seed can you plant today? What knowledge do you have that you can share with someone else to improve their life or spread love?
