Pay It Forward & Treat Everyone Like A Good Friend

Email  Print Print  

The general idea of “pay it forward” is one that’s been discussed very often on the Internets but finds its origins back in the days of Benjamin Franklin, if not earlier (and simply not recorded). In general, the idea is that you do a good deed for someone else and then that person does it for someone else and then that person (or multiply it and do three good deeds)… you get the idea. There’s no expectation of return or anything like that, you just keep the good love flowing. I believe this Heineken commercial is a play off that idea (or it’s just a good analogy):

I think we need to extend the idea and simply treat everyone as if they were a good friend. Good friends do favors for each other without any expectations of a return. Good friends treat each other with respect and give each other grief. If you treat everyone like a friend and they do the same, the world would be a better place.

Time to grab a beer!

    I agree. We need to follow the rule of treating other the way we would like to be treated. Too many focus on changing the world, which can sometime be an elusive wish, when if everyone can focus on encouraging each other, the world would be a better place. Sorry for getting deep on you all, but this post had me thinking.

    I agree – what comes around goes around, or something like that.
    People treat each other so poorly – I see it everyday.
    Is it so hard to be polite and respectful?

    “Pay it Forward” is a Very Rare idea , that , if enacted , Actually COULD Change the WORLD !

  4. that is a great vid to emphasize a widely overlooked basic point, but at 0:27, when the beer is given to the Indian lady in front of the pundit (priest) while what is depicted as a wedding is a huge screw up for the ad people…

    I would also think that giving a beer to a ballerina isn’t a good idea either. Ok, so it’s a light beer, but still, to me, I just thought “ballerina & Heineken not a good match.”

    “Pay it forward” is a super good idea that everybody complements. Anybody with a good heart can contribute to make the world a paradise of friends. Thank you “pay it forward”.
