The reason why you’re not able to connect with people is because you think of connecting only when you need/want something from them.
The reason why you never get a reply is because you almost always have a hidden agenda.
When you reverse the process and become a giver in a world full of takers, everything changes.
If you want something from someone, be upfront and straightforward. Don’t beat around the bush. And most importantly, respect people’s time – that’s the greatest asset we have.
