Here’s a thought for you: Business and marriage aren’t really all that different. There’s one common success principle in both scenarios: The more we think about serving others, the more successful our business and marriage becomes. The Bible says the greatest among you will be the one who serves the most people, which makes me think of today’s fastest growing companies: places like Airbnb, Facebook, Google, and Uber. They find ways to serve millions of people, in often the most basic ways, and that service is getting them results. I think of the best long-term marriages I know, and they all have one thing in common: They’re thinking about serving their spouse every day, for a lifetime.
Service and success are married — and service is the key to the results that you want.
