Why Generosity Is The Key To Success
I read an article recently that may require one to suspend disbelief in order to truly appreciate the deeper message. Pay It Forward: Why Generosity Is The Key To Success suggests we fit into three basic categories: Givers, Matchers, and Takers.
Back in March of 2011 I recorded a video entitled Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. In it, I confess that I get far more out of sharing than I ever put in. In essence, by being a Giver, I get more than any Taker ever will.
If you want to be a professional Taker, watch the video and consider the edu-riches I've reaped.
I encounter educators all the time who say they don't have time to share or that they're uncomfortable taking a step into the big, bad, scary Web 2.0 world or, worst of all, they simply want to clutch their lessons to their chest: They're MINE! I worked hard to create these!
It's not touchy-feely new age nonsense; the more you give, the more you get. Be selfish. Share every good idea that you have with as many people as possible.
Yes? No? Why? Why not?
