Who are you helping today?

Zig Zigler, Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk and many others talk about the same thing in much of their work. The advice comes in many forms but most of the time it can be simplified down to this, “Who are you helping today?”

Some people talk about serving the customer, or the reader, but it doesn’t really matter how you describe a person. It all comes down to helping other people. I think that’s what life is all about. At least, I think that’s what I think it takes to have a satisfying life.

This is what I’m thinking about today, “How can I help one person?” Tomorrow, I’ll think about how I can focus on that one question every day.
