I was reading this article about Turning Inspiration into Action and saw this quote that leapt out at me because it summarises a principle that I try to live my life along.
Helping others to accomplish their goals is an inherently self-less but social way of saying “I care about your goals”. Don’t make it transactional, nor about you. Just do it because you care, knowing networks are how work gets done now-a-days.
I believe give and it will come back to you, a full measure pressed down, shaken together and running over. And never to tire in giving and I always get back more than what I put in.
