195: People like to help

Do you struggle asking people for help?

Many people do. But the greats don’t:

  • Newton formulated the Law of Gravity, but wouldn’t have been able to without the help of Galileo’s work.
  • Galileo proved Heliocentrism, but wouldn’t have been able to without the help of Copernicus’ theory.
  • Copernicus gave Galileo a theory to prove, but needed Ptolemy’s Geocentrist theories to build upon.

And so it goes on, a chain-reaction of help creating breakthroughs throughout history.

So, about that challenge you’re working on in your organization. Ask for help. People like to help far more than we expect them to.

History proves it.
