We all know people that can fit in the categories of givers and takers. But like most things in life, we need both in order to thrive. The givers are great account managers and customer service reps. The takers are better suited to sales or executive roles. But that doesn’t mean you have to like all those people.
In any species, even the peaceful dove, there is bound to be an argument here and there. If you are a giver and need to remove a few takers from your personal life, go for it. But you’ll probably have to deal with a few in the real world and in business.
A Feel Good Story
Now I will end this blog on a completely positive note. I have been following a friend as he rides his bike from New Jersey to Florida to benefit two children’s hospitals. His name is Mac. He likes to inspire people. He likes to ride his bike. And he is doing something big, much bigger than himself. I regularly hear people talking about “what this world has come to”. But then I follow a story like Mac’s and have restored faith in our future.
We can all come together and do good things. We all have the power to do that.
