Derek Sivers
from the book “Your Music and People”:

Don’t be a mosquito.


A mosquito enters a room of people only to suck something out of them.

People hate mosquitos.

It’s important to meet people, but more important to get to know them. Ask questions. Listen.

Learn what they love. Learn what they want. Figure out what you can do for them.

Relationships are reciprocal. You need to give to receive.

Don’t be a mosquito.
