A few minutes ago, I read this tweet from my friend Lisa. After I retweeted it, I turned it back to her with my own tweet.

  Soon, my friend Anthony joined in. He retweeted my message about Lisa, then added his own:

The entire exchanged happened quickly.

We happened to all be online and we took the opportunity to encourage each other.

It only took a few minutes.

It only takes a moment to type out 140 characters, powerful key strokes that can change the course of a person’s day.

It only takes a moment to make someone smile, to cheer them on, to express appreciation, to deepen a connection.

It only takes a moment to honor someone’s contribution, to make them feel like a super star, to show how deeply you value them.

Let’s keep it going. Who can you inspire today?
