About a year ago, Forbes featured an article about the 40 Things to Say Before You Die. Wow, that’s getting right to the point, eh? I encourage that you read through the list because they are all good reminders. This one in particular was special to me though, “How can I help you?”
Social media is this beautiful place where that question is welcomed and cherished. The diagram has it 100% correct. You offer the help. You give the help. You grow as a person, as a business, etc. Then you just keep repeating the process. Activity begets activity.
I want to keep today’s touch short and sweet. I challenge you no matter how busy you are, no matter what you have on your plate, no matter how crappy you might be feeling to ask this question, “How can I help you?” and give of yourself (your time, talent and resources) to another human being and grow yourself (and them!) as a purposeful person. This is true for both our online (connections and followers) and offline (family and friends) lives. Make yourself truly available to others!
