Happy Monday!
In a speech by Simon Sinek, he shares, “We value people more if they spend their time on us.” Think about it…let’s say you are celebrating your birthday. Two really great friends of yours decide to treat you on your special day. One friend gives you a gift card to your favorite store for a generous $3,000. Another friend, goes out with you to your birthday party, comes to your place a bit early to have a pre-birthday drink and catch up on what you’ve been up to since you’ve seen each other last.
You two go out on the town and share a few laughs. A few weeks go by, and both friends suddenly need your help. Which one do you more instinctively want to help? Most people would say the friend who spent their time with you. You know that money is in abundance, there will always be ways to replace it. But the friend who gave you five hours on your birthday, they can never get their time back.
Furthermore, there is research to back this up. In a world-wide study conducted by Martin Seligman of Princeton, found that those who spent at least 2-3 hours a week having dinner and/or drinks with close friends and family made them report a significantly higher level of well-being.
No matter how you plan to spend the week ahead, consider spending just a small percentage of that time with those who will make you smile and feel good: your future self will thank you.
🍺to another great week ahead!
