A return on your investment

Believe it or not, I'm not talking about the housing market…I'm speaking about relationships.   “Do to others as you would have them do to you”, Luke – 6:31.  Relationship building can apply directly to the work world as well!  I encourage you to do a little experiment for yourself this week.  On LinkedIn, endorse 10 people and write one recommendation.  Now get out a pen and paper, write 10 personal notes, and drop them in the mail.  Then call up 10 people you haven’t talked to in awhile and say hello.  You would be surprised in two ways.  One, how good it feels to do something nice for others and how much fun it is to reconnect.  Two, how many times people will return the favor and show their appreciation.  Most jobs are relationship based.  Help yourself build those relationships and it’ll return in multiples.
