Reconnecting

In business, we are all looking to make money and fund the lives which we consider comfortable. Interestingly enough, two things occur during this process. Number one, most of us want to make sure that we pay our bills and give our families what they need to survive and grow. Number two, we need other humans, in various capacities, to help us accomplish that goal. Reconnecting with former classmates, friends and employees is one of the most valuable things which we can do with our time. The funny thing about this is, we often find ways to reconnect with our income, but not the people in our lives which might aid us in receiving this needed income. In other words, we often forget our actual investors in favor of the bottom line.

Research has shown that human contact is necessary in order to emotionally, mentally and psychologically understand the everyday world around us. If we do not have at least two people with whom we are close on a regular basis, then we begin to internally become disoriented and turned around. Without this closeness, our incomes are not the only thing at stake, but also our ability to even process this income is in jeopardy.

So, when we hear people talking about “taking others for granted,” it is a very real circumstance.

The interesting thing about reaching our bottom line for financial payments and costs is that often the bottom line is the goal or end-product, but we ignore all of the steps to reaching it, i.e. the relationships in our lives. In the U.S., this is called, “jumping out of the pot and into the fire” or “throwing the baby out with the bathwater.” In concentrating on meeting our financial needs, we ignore parts of our lives which are necessary in order to meet those financial needs.

Thankfully, relationships are more likely to be fostered and maintained in an environment where drug and alcohol abuse is prohibited, such as businesses in which drug and alcohol testing is regularly implemented.
