There is no doubt that people matter. There are over 7 billion people on the planet, and there is even a population clock run by the US Census where you can “watch” the world population grow by the second. My point today though is that it is our relationships with other people that make life enjoyable and fulfilling, and oftentimes amidst our desire to succeed at work, or our connection to technology that we forget that there are people, and people that matter all around us.
The other day I had the privilege of seeing my sister after the birth of her first child, a baby girl. Talking with my sister I was flooded with emotion knowing the importance that she was going to have in her daughter’s life. She will be her mother through the panic filled first day of school, the drama of a first date, and the stress of applying to college. I realized that in those moments where she is her child’s mother, she won’t care about the Instagram her high school friend posted, or the restaurant she was at 10 years ago, she will be caring for her little girl.
My main point to remember is that people matter. The simple point is too often forgotten, and we’re often too distracted to realize that being those that we care about is what will bring happiness to our lives.
Let’s all find the people that mean something to us, and do something for them before we get too distracted. Here at Innovation Simple our clients, partners and employees matter to us. If you’re interested in any of our services we’d be happy to welcome you to our family.
