So, I’m going to take a moment and vent just a tiny bit. It seems to me that not enough people believe in reciprocity especially when it comes to building relationships whether business or personal. It’s happened to me, you help out a fellow business owner or friend promote their business and what do you get in return, a cursory “thank you.” Well, I overheard a conversation recently about just that, someone doing something nice for someone else with nothing in return, and I wondered why reciprocity is not the norm. Don’t get me wrong we should all do nice things for others without expecting anything in return, but when you’ve given all you can and reciprocity doesn’t exit, seriously, what’s that all about? Don’t people believe in Karma?
I read in someone’s tweet that this world is erected upon the principle of reciprocity. Neither a drop of kindness nor a speck of evil will remain unreciprocated. Something to remember! Done venting. ;)
