The first piece of advice came through one of our team member’s father who told him to consider his life as a bucket where the goal was to meet as many people as possible and get to know them.  In other words build your network of people in business, friends and community.  

Leadership Tools: 3 Critical Buckets. People you have met, Favors done for others, and Favors requested or received.

The other two buckets came from some advice received many years ago from a source that can’t be remembered.  It was simple - keep two buckets; one of favors done for others and one of favors done for you or requested by you.  Simply make sure that the bucket of favors done for others is at least twice as full as the bucket with favors done for you.  In other words be a servant leader.
