Sharing is Caring

Theodore Roosevelt famously said, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." In today's relationship-driven society, where people are said to do business with folks they "know, like and trust", building that foundation is so integral for one's success. Such an endeavor takes time and energy but is paramount for connecting with others.

I have found the basis for building many of my most valued relationships stems from the understanding that "Sharing is caring", whether I am sharing information, time, a listening ear, a helping hand, a little bit of happiness or whatever might be of value to the person with whom I am sharing. It is about reaching out and creating a connection.

There are so many options for what can be shared with those about whom you care, but here is a sampling of ideas to consider:

- book, eBook or article you've written that might be helpful

- someone else's content that might be of interest to that person

- flowers to brighten up that person's office or home

- a handwritten note to convey your appreciation or share news

- time in-person over coffee, tea, frozen yogurt or a cocktail

- a phone call to catch-up and see how that person is doing

What do you share with those about whom you care to deepen the connection? How can you take action today to share something new and different with someone?
