I was looking at some posts from my RSS feed, and a piece by Ethan Marcotte caught my eye. It helps to know that people still value kindness.

Is there a piece of professional or life advice you’ve gotten that has always stuck with you? What is it?

My grandmother once told me, “You should offer praise in public, and offer gentle criticism in private.” She said a lot that shaped the way I approach the world, but I think about that particular suggestion a lot.
