The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them. Benjamin Jowett
In the book “The Go Giver” Bob Burg outlines what he calls the Law of Receptivity – only by being open to receiving do we allow others the opportunity to give.
This was my biggest takeaway from the book.
The quote above reminded me of this.
When we don’t worry about getting the credit or about who does what, when we are open to have others do for us or on our behalf; we give them the opportunity to give and be of service.
So much of our happiness is dependent on our ability to be of useful service.
We get more done and create more happiness when we open to others helping (and getting the credit).
Some of my favorite Mavidea moments have been the times when a Mavidean gets the credit for being of service to someone.
Look for opportunities to help others be of service. For opportunities to work together and forget about who gets the credit.
Make it a great day.
