Art for Establishing Human Networking
I knew-no computer or technology ever got any of US a raise, landed US that dream job, found us that mentor (良师), who cared deeply about US and our careers or put that special joy in our lives that can only come from relationships with others.
All these great things are made possible by a completely different type of networking：human networking. And not the kind that has given “networking” a bad name—that superficial, insincere, manipulative stuff that we all can smell a mile away. No, I am out the true art of networking, based upon respectful and caring relationships that promote mutual success.
Let me start with one of the most fundamental aspects of human relationships. For each and every thing you want to achieve in life whether it is landing a job, earning a raise or promotion or finding that lifelong romance —— there will be at least one person on the other end deciding whether to give you or help you get what you want. Everything we do can only be accomplished through and with other people. Simply put, success, of any kind, requires relationships. Just think of the words of Margaret Wheatley: “Relationships are all there is. Everything in the universe only exists because it is in relationship to everything else. Nothing exists in isolation. We have to stop pretending we are individuals that can go it alone.”
If this is the way the universe works, you can see why human relationships and human networks are so important.
