Seth Godin on Generosity

Good blog post by Seth Godin on generosity:

Here it is in a nutshell:

Generosity requires:

1. Meaningful sacrifice—it can't just be a "favor," which implies some sort of recompense;
2. Kindness—i.e. a cheerful giver, one who doesn't act begrudgingly;
3. Design—there must be the sense of deliberateness, that generosity very well may not have been given;
4. Vulnerability–putting ourselves out there despite the possibility of rejection.

Bitterness kills generosity.
