与える人こそ成功する時代だそうです。私は洋書を読みましたが、日本語でも本が出ているようですね。Giverは、惜しみなく相手の利益のために色々とやってくる方ですね。Takerは、自分の利益ばかり考える人。そしてMatcher、何かしてあげたら、自分も何かをしてあげる。もしくは、何かしてあげたら、何かしてもらうことを期待する人ですが、ほとんどの人がMatcherです。ただし、成功しているのは、Giverということです。結局Takerの人は、大儲けしてもその後悲惨なことが待ち受けてることが多いですね。長い目で成功するにはGiverにならないとですね。


「Give and Take」
According to conventional widwom, higly successful people have there things in common: motivation, ability, and opportunity. If we want to succed, we need a combination of hard work, talent, and luck. The story of Danny Shader and David Hornik highlights a fourth ingredient, one that’s critial but often neglected: success depends heavily on how we approach our interactions with other people. Every time we intract with another person at work, we have a choice to make: do we try to claim as much value as we can, or contribute value without worrying about what we receive in return?

Being a giver is not good for a 100 yard dash, but it’s valuable in a marathon.

A successful venture capitalist is “a service provider. Entrepreneurs are not here to serve venture capitalists. We are here to serve entrepreneurs.”

If you’re a self-sacrificing giver, you’ll find plenty of insights for ascending from the bottom to the top of the success ladder. If you endor giver values but act like a matcher at work, you may be pleasantly surprised by the wealth of opportunities to express your values and find meaning in helping otheres without compromising your own success. Instead of aiming to succeed first and give back later, you might decide that giving first is a promising path to successding later. And if you currently lean toward taking, you may just be tempted to shift in the giver direction, seeking to master the skills of this growing breed of people who achieve success by contributing to otheres. 

I check their Linkedin or Facebook. Sometimes we have mutual friends, or went to the same school, or the people on my team will have a link to them. Lee expalins. “You can understand someone’s reputations are visible to the world, it’s harder to achieve sustainable success as a taker.
