ACTION STEP: Sign up for a service that tracks all of your key relationships and reminds you to follow up with those people at intervals that you select. Then follow up religiously. You never know who is hurting or who needs a kind word or gesture. Let people know that you care, not what you need.
Here is the problem: when we are good at something, other people start to give us recognition. We can settle for receiving recognition instead of hitting our goals. Don’t settle! The solution is to keep pushing, regardless of whether we are “good” or others recognize our progress.
