I share with you the greatest two-word tip of all time.
These two words are the single, best advice in improving your effectiveness in any endeavor.
I encourage you to write these two words down and perhaps tape them where they can remind you so you will look at them, especially as you begin your day. These two words can enhance your life and bring more satisfaction and joy. They can literally change your life. If you are a parent, use them with your children. If you are a teacher, use the two words with your students. If you are in leadership position, use these two words to prompt improvement in others. The two words are, "Extend yourself."
Write one more "thank you," acknowledge that e-mail, make that phone call, spend a little more time with those important to you, share one more experience, help one more individual, or do one more thing today that you might have put off until tomorrow.
Extend yourself—and see the results not only for the other person but, and perhaps more importantly, for yourself.
