Making someone else happy

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 2.48.26 PM.pngStuck for what you should do next?

Focus on making one person happy. Buy them a gift. Feed them. Sit and listen to them talk without offering any advice, only support. See the movie they want to see with them.

If they want to, let them do something in return. Letting them do something for you will make them happy. What did they do for you? Can you return the favor?

Anticipate a need they don’t even have yet and offer them a solution. Do something completely weird and unexpected that they can tell as a story to their friends. Take them on an adventure to a place that makes you happy.

After you’ve listened carefully and seen how they react to the things that you love, why not invent a product, a recipe, a song or a short story just to appeal to that one person? At this point, you’ve got a pretty good idea about what they really like.

When you are looking for what you should do next, why not focus on making one person happy? I bet, after all that effort, what you do would make more than that one person happy. In fact, I bet it would make a bunch of people happy.

Focus on an audience of one first. Build from there.
