Connect the Dots

Connect the Dots“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. “

~ Steve Jobs

Contribution without expectation works much the same way.  The gift of yourself is one of the most valuable gifts you can offer.  Contributing to the lives of others in a way the brings  value is unmeasurable.

Being of service to others can take many forms.  It can be as simple as forwarding an interesting article, say this post for example, to serving as a mentor to another business professional.  Ot is natural for us to want to give. The key is to give without any expectation of something in return.

Studies of America’s top executives show that most of them attribute their success to the act of giving to others throughout their careers.  But it not for this reason alone that we should seek ways to bring value to others.  The act of contribution should occur as a selfless act we perform day in and day out.

In future posts we will continue to explore how we can share our gifts and knowledge with others.  For one thing is for certain…without contribution there will be no dots to connect.
