Pay It Forward and the 6 degrees of separation
I like to combine the principles of Pay It Forward and the 6th degree of separation .
Here is how they can be defined:
- Pay it Forward: opposite of payback: when someone does a good dead for you, instead of paying them back, pay it forward by doing a good deed for someone else.
- Six degrees of separation is the idea that all people are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. As a result, a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.

Make a difference
From visiting for a coffee an isolated friend to donating to a charitable organisation, all these little things we all can do, all together amount to a lot.
