How many minutes a day are wasted not doing anything productive? How often do we not have a minute to do something good for someone else when asked? If we are too busy to help another, why are we not more productive.
Actually, being productive includes lending a hand when someone else needs one. When you help someone else, are you not helping yourself? I remember reading in a good book somewhere that sharing your talents with others brings them back to you, shaken down and overflowing.
You cannot give away some things, and the more you try, the more they come back to you with interest. I do not know exactly why this is. I only know through experience that it is true.
What are your talents doing for you, and how are they multiplying?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
