“You can easily judge the character of a person by how they treat those who can do nothing for them.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Cue, craving, response, reward.
In “Atomic Habits”, by James Clear, this is the loop process that determines many of our actions.

A large part of the above is the final piece – the reward. We can be reward oriented creatures. Which in all reality is not a bad thing. We find ourselves in trouble however, when it is the *only* thing.

The quote above gives us something to think about. Sometime today, we’ll come across the individual who can offer us the least. Potentially even, “do nothing for us”. We’ll know who it is when we see them.

How we act inside that moment is the reality of our character.
