I’m currently attending the Seth Godin Podcasting Fellowship. It’s a group of a bunch of people all working to improve and refine their podcasting and speaking skills. Seth promises that the more you give, the more you will get out of it, and the principle is true.
I can refine and refine my own message, but until I go in and help others see ways to improve, I have a hard time seeing the stain on my own shirt, so to speak.
It’s true in all ares of life. Just look out for the other person, make sure you are helping where you can and things will always work out just fine for you. There is a way to twist this principle and to be walked on, that’s not what I’m saying here.
