People Matter

3/2/2009   Comment on This

We have all heard a million times that it's not what you know but who you know. This is the truest of all statements. I would also like to add that networking (hate that word) is extremely important because it gets you out to meet people.

Case in point is my friend George Bliss. I thought I knew people. This guy knows the world. I met him through some people I know and he has introduced me to Garry Meier, Mike North, Walter Jacobson, and Amy Jacobson, just to name a few. Amy is now a co-host on my Sunday evening radio program "Living Large".

There are so many egomaniacs out in the world, it's incredible. The way to get farther in life is wisdom through other people. That's how it works. The only way to get wisdom is to meet people who you can help, and who can also help you. You have to be in the know, not become a self-absorbed monster, which has become so common in life.

The only thing we have besides material possessions is people. You would be better off investing your time and effort into people you could know than worrying about not having enough things. You never know where that next person can lead you or vice-versa. If you talk to ten people in a day and ask them the same question, do you think you know more or less at the end of the day? Get to know people, have them get to know you, and you will accomplish a whole lot more in life.

Agree? Let me know.
