Ripple Exercise: How Strong Is Your Connection cont'd

So let's take a look at the numbers and see what it all means.

First take the number you placed out to the side of each person and add them all together.

Now, divide that by 8.

That number should come up with your average.

Got it?

Now what does that number mean?

Well, let's take a look.

If your average is:

0 - Are you sure these people should be on your "Top List?"
1 - You definitely need to work on this relationship!
2 - More effort required stat!
3 - Are you really happy being average?
4 - You are doing all the right things, keep it up!
5 - Outstanding (show-off!)

You may be shocked at how good or perhaps, not so good your average is.  Incidentally mine averaged 2.125 which showed me that I do in fact need to put more effort towards the people that are important to me. 

Remember relationship building takes time.  It takes attention.  It takes effort.  You have to be willing to commit to all of these things in order to adequately build and grow your relationships the right way. 

This a simple exercise but an important one.  If you are truly committed to your 8 people then make sure you are doing the right things to insure your relationship continues to develop and grow. Maximize your interactions and be sure to be giving more than you are taking from these people.

Now I am off to follow my own advice and see if I can't improve my own score and the relationships that go with it.

Ripple On!!!
