I am always stressing the importance of relating to the human aspect and how it relates to business as well as the importance of relationships. Today I experienced, once again, why this is so important.
We are all in the same boat when it comes to doing a zillion things at the same time and rushing around in the hopes of getting to even half of our daily to-do list. Not too long ago, I wrote an article called "Think you are in a Slump? Think again! What Really Matters in Life? that touched many hearts in the same way it came from mine.
Not unlike all of you, I juggle many balls at the same time. One in particular, is submitting my articles to the many available submission sites. However, because of time contraints, I have been somewhat lax in my submissions. So last night, I decided I needed to play a little catch-up and start submitting. Which site did I choose? The one that had a name associated with the "editor" title in the generic emails we receive when our articles are accepted. Many months ago, Dr. Jay Stockman, Editor in Chief of Aricle Niche Directory, sent me an email that said "Great articles". I was a little surprised and of course pleased that he appreciated what I wrote. That is all it took to create a connection – one email with a name attached and a personal message. So Article Niche Directory is the site I chose. I submitted a whole slew of them – I said I had been lax and I wasn't kidding!
Today, to my pleasant surprise, I received an email from Dr. Stockman notifying me that my article was chosen as the "editor's choice". Of all the articles I submitted, the one he chose was the one that is closest to my heart because it came directly from my heart. In this crazy world we live in, when something we do touches another person's heart, it might not bring us any money – but it sure does bring us a strong sense of personal accomplishment and for that, there is no price tag.
