Adding Value to People

I was talking to a friend last night who was introducing me to a  friend of his. Here’s how he described him:

“Mike is an incredible human being. I want to be around him because he tries to add value to every interaction and to every person he can. I always feel better when I spend time with Mike.”

It got me thinking, “Do I do that? Do I purposely seek to add value?” And I couldn’t answer yes.

But I want to.

So, for November, my intention is going to be to consciously think at the beginning of an interaction, “How can I enrich this person and add value to their lives?” Even if it’s just a kind word or a smile, I’ll seek to add value.

Notice how this removes the thought, “How can they help me? or What’s in it for me?”. It puts the focus back where it belongs.
