10 Original Text “Every time you smile at a messenger, laugh at a coworker’s joke, thank an assistant, or treat a stranger with graciousness and respect, you throw off positive energy. That energy makes an impression on the other person that, in turn, is passed along to and imprinted on the myriad others he or she meets. Such imprints have a multiplier effect. And ultimately, those favorable impressions find their way back to you” (Thaler & Koval, 2006, p.6). Thaler, L.K. & Koval, R. (2006). The Power of Nice. New York, NY: Doubleday.
