"Pay It Forward," is based on the book by Catherine Ryan Hyde, and relies on the premise of committing premeditated acts of kindness. What's important in "Pay It Forward" is not so much what's spoken, but what's left unsaid .
A class is given an assignment with the onerous duty of changing the world. A young boy takes the assignment seriously and comes up with the concept of "paying it forward": giving three favors to complete strangers, and, instead of asking them to pay the favor back , requesting they pay it forward instead.
If it sounds a bit simplistic, it's a 12-year-old character that invents the simple, eloquent and transcendent idea of paying favors forward. What's more amazing than this simplicity, is the fact that it works.
It's time to consider “paying it forward” when it comes to building your network and helping others.
