Point to ponder: Your last few phone calls

Yesterday when you called one of your friends, did you want something from them or did you have something for them?

What about last week?

What about last month?

What about last year?

If you analyze your phone calls (that you initiated) in the last six months, what percentage of them were requests for something and what percentage were those that created new opportunities or possibilities for the other person?

In other words, generally do you want to GET something from someone or do you want to GIVE something to them?

What changes would you make in the next six months in this area to open new possibilities for people around you?

Something to think about.
