Our very own Panda was interviewed by our friend Bakadesuyo about how to make friends and influence people!
This is me quoting Eric quoting me paraphrasing Bill Nye:
"Bill Nye says everyone you meet knows something you donâ€™t.Â Networking is a great opportunity to learn from others!"
Great interview! What goes around comes around - Karma, indeed:) Thanks, Adam & Eric!
You're welcome, Lisa.
This is my other favorite part of the interview:
Every day, do something selfless for someone else that takes under five minutes. The essence of this thing you do should be that it makes a big difference to the person receiving the gift. Usually these favors take the form of an introduction, reference, feedback, or broadcast on social media.
But yeah, do something thatâ€™s not for yourself, every single day. Expect nothing in return. Over time, these random acts of kindness will really add up.
More on five-minute favors:
Great read! MyÂ favorite quote is:
"Most people try to escalate a relationship too quickly.Trust is built slowly, over time.Â
Good relationships are built little by little, and there are no shortcuts, so do not try to push the relationship to progress faster than is natural."
Thank you Arthur.
"Relationships are progressions" comes from John Lilly:
"There are no shortcuts" comes from Mark Cuban:
and to think it all started with a picture of a cat pushing a watermelon.... ;O)
Everyone has to start somewhere, Christine. ;)
