A Little Happier: “Be Polite and Be Fair, and You’ll Be Fine.”

I love it when people know just what to say — for instance, when they can convey a big idea in just a few words.

I’ve never forgotten the stern look on my boss’s face as she gave me this advice, as I was about to take on a new position: “Be polite and be fair, and you’ll be fine.” And it turns out, she’s right. Being polite and being fair covers most situations.

Check out Yogi Tea. When it comes to enjoying life, little moments — like drinking a delicious cup of tea — can make a big difference.
