People sometimes ask me how to sustain better relationships with the people in their lives. My #1 suggestion is something that, unfortunately, several people I love fall down on regularly. It’s this: when it comes to your relationship with your co-worker, friend, or significant other – pull your weight.
Alexandra Levit writes about something that would have struck a chord with me a few months ago in her article entitled Do You Suffer From Relationship Laziness. I definitely have, and occasionally still do, but one thing is for sure: the more you put into any relationship, the more you will get out of it.
It’s pretty simple advice, but you can fall out of practice. I guess that’s why Alexandra mentions ‘laziness’ and not ‘unwillingness’. Small gestures and thoughtfulness mean a lot to the people you know.
