Chick-fil-A Entrepreneur Kevin Williams Promotes a Life of Kindness in New Book


Chick-fil-A employees are nationally known for the kindness with which they treat their restaurant guests. Kevin Williams, a raretriple-franchisee of Chick-Fil-A, wrote Irrational Kindness: The Crazy Pursuit of an Extraordinary Life (January 2021) as both an operating manual for life and an employee handbook for his Chick-fil-A staff, encouraging us all to explore kindness in a unique way both towards yourself and others.

"Think of this book as an operating manual for the heart-written for teens, moms, dads, students, retirees, recent graduates, and dreamers, all of whom are bound together by two empowering and sobering truths, which are that our jobs are much more than just jobs and our lives are about much more than serving ourselves," writes Williams.

"Allow this book to serve as a harmonious reminder that our hopes and dreams don't have to be derailed-not byour fears, our pasts, or by people who make us feel like we have to know everything to be successful, or even just to get started."

Williams strips irrationality of its negative context by suggesting that living irrationally is the most positive, inspiring and empowering way to be. Irrational Kindness serves as a reminder that everyone hasthe power to live an extraordinary life, regardless of their fears, the messiness of their lives or their pastmistakes. Williams implores his readers to value understanding others and to prioritize kindness-towards yourself and others-over everything.
