A study measured the time it took for children to quickly sift through hundreds of rubber balls to collect the one with their names on them. The second time around, they were instructed to help one another find the balls with their names on them. As you’d guess, they achieved the same outcome in less than half the time by helping others reach their goals.
You don’t see many books with titles like ‘The top 10 ways to help others achieve success.” Perhaps it’s not intuitive, but assisting others in getting what they want is the fastest route to finding the metaphorical rubber ball with your name on it.
