Do the little things matter to you?
If they do, wouldn’t you want the little things to also matter to your employer, your manager, your connections and to your relationships?
Isn’t it much easier to see eye to eye if you and the recipient noticed and appreciated the little things together?
This past week, I had the opportunity to speak about Salesforce careers to the Salesforce Pathfinder Program.
Afterwards, all the students of the program sent personal LinkedIn connection requests.
Of course, they didn’t need to.
The easy “connect” button is available to everyone.
“So what, Chris, it probably only took 30 seconds.”
Good point, I guess 30 seconds is too much for most.
Often, the time is not what matters, the gesture does.
As you continue your career progression, your little things will stack up over time, and eventually will lead you to the bigger things that you’re striving for.
