I have a bird feeder that allows two birds to eat at the same time directly from the feeder. What happens in reality is that many more birds also eat simultaneously by feasting off the seeds that fall from the feeder while the others are there.

The process is akin to the job of the leaders – those at the feeder do work that makes it possible for others to benefit. It’s not just themselves that they are feeding, rather they create an environment where many others can flourish.

Think about your work: can you do it in such a way that contributes value to more than yourself?
