In every interaction that you have with a person, you should be asking yourself, how can I add value to this person’s life? – Geoff Woods
Be genuinely interested in what others have to say and sincerely offer to help them. Eventually, it will come back to you. It’s as simple as asking. Success habit: Planning, planning, and planning. Failing to plan is planning to fail.
