When was the last time you really made someone's day? I mean in a HUGE way. There's no rush like it. think about a business partner, coworker, or other colleague that you could contribute to. Or make a HUGE difference to an organization near and dear to your heart.
Here's the thing: We all have something to contribute that costs us little (in time and resources) but is extremely valuable to someone else. What can you offer?
The Theme for Day 12 is Giving Back
Here's a portion of the email I sent to teams Y and Z:
One way to experience a breakthrough is by contributing to the success of others. And I don’t mean helping others so that you can gain. When we sincerely open up our time, minds, and hearts, we gain and grow.
I know it is Sunday, but I want you to think of a few ways in which you can give back:
How could you make a difference for others?
What could you offer that would mean a lot to someone else?
How might you volunteer?
What could you do that is a nice surprise?
Construct 2-3 emails or make phone calls offering to contribute to others. It will be most meaningful if you offer to assist business acquaintances or nonprofit organizations. You can help out your friends, too, but this is something you likely already do. I would like you to contribute in new ways.
Make someone else's day!
