There is little debate that the ultimate gift is one life for another.
Giving a piece of your life.
Ask the adult children of many ultra-successful 8pm Warriors what they really wanted growing up, and it wouldn’t be another BMW or horse. What do most people truly want from their mentors, parents, spouses, children, friends, or advisors?
They want your time.
Basically, they want the stuff you can’t buy, fake, or transfer.
Next time you’re wondering what to get the “person who has everything”, try giving them a piece of your life. Even a smallest amount is appreciated.
Since yesterday was my birthday, it was heartwarming to see the emails, text messages, facebook wall posts, cards, tweets, and blog comments. It took time and thoughtfulness and it was very much appreciated.
Thanks for nearly the ultimate gift!
I am thankful tonight,
