Being there is important. This is especially the case when:
- People are expecting you.
- People need you.
- It’s easier for you not to be there.
- You not only show up in person, but you show up with understanding and support.
Talk is cheap. It’s what we do that matters. And by being there for another person, we demonstrate what they can expect from us in the future. That’s a powerful way to build great relationships, both personal and professional.
