The power of giving without doing charity — Productive Club

The giving that is important for your success is giving in terms of value.

Givers Vs Takers

The Takers:

  • The friends who call you only when they need something
  • The next door neighbor who only shows up when some grocery is missing
  • The strangers who message you on LinkedIn for a referral
  • The ones who post only their own content on Facebook for likes
  • That unknown friend on Facebook who invites you to like his/her page etc

The Givers are of two kinds:

Giving without any charity

Simple ways of giving daily

Giving does not have to be complex either. You can give every single day in various ways.

  • The Uber ride that you just finished, uttering “Thank you,” along with a smile and a good rating will help the driver get more rides and make him happier.
  • Picking up and handing the plate to the waiter who comes to clear the table makes the waiter feel more respected
  • A thank you with a smile to the person at the billing counter of a gas station will cheer him up
  • The referral for an unknown person(even if the stranger was a taker) on LinkedIn
  • Helping a newcomer at work improve by training him on areas you are great at
