We are all on a search – a search for more meaning in our lives. Through choosing to enrich other people’s lives, you add meaning to both their life and your own. Here are some simple steps to follow, suggested by Rajesh Setty, entrepreneur, speaker and author of Life Beyond Code.

1. Commit: Commit to lifetime-relationships that span events, companies, causes and geographic boundaries.

2. Care: Care for the concerns of others as if they are your own.

3. Connect: Aim to connect those who will benefit and enrich each other’s lives in equal measure.

4. Communicate: Communicate candidly. Tell people what they should hear rather than what they want to hear.

5. Expand Capacity: Aim to expand people’s capacity to help them give and get more from their own lives.

The Litmus Test: If you are truly enriching someone’s life, they will typically miss you in their past. They think their lives would have been even better if they had met you earlier.

You are only as rich as the enrichment you bring to the world around you.

That’s a truly meaningful list & I love its simplicity.

I recently researched the Charter for Compassion, but essentially it is captured under that one word “care”.

I also love the word ‘connect’, especially in today’s world where there are so many mediums/media to connect through.
