Refuse to Argue and Pick Your Battles. Engaging in a conversation with another person is a choice we make (whether we always do so consciously or not). Make a conscious effort to note when you're entering into an argument, and then just stop. Remember, not every argument is worth engaging in so don't feel like you have to get into an argument just because someone else is asking for one.

Do It, Don't Say It. 

You know that old common wisdom,Actions speak louder than words? Well, its true. While you can apologize for not doing something until you're blue in the face, you'll gain so much more appreciation by another in your life by simply doing it in the first place. Yes, it means you have to work harder to keep on top of things to begin with, but the reward is that people will know you care because you just did it without being asked or reminded to do so.

According to Cynthia Ozick, American writer, "We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude."
