“Be excellent to each other”

Some movies might not be amazing but some leave an imprint within popular culture. ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ may well fall into that category. This movie was released in 1989 and features a very young looking Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, and the comedian George Carlin.

It contains the following piece of movie wisdom:

Be excellent to each other.



It is repeated in the movie and worth repeating here. It is important to “be excellent” to the other people that we meet in our lives. Being helpful, polite, and showing kindness to others is a low threshold. It can be easy to overlook these simple behaviors while living in busy cities and while pursuing accelerated careers and social lives. It is easier in the anonymity of busy cities and on the internet to do otherwise. But this is essential behavior online and in real life.
