givers are the biggest winners

Maria Popova reviews
Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success,
by Adam Grant

"Givers, takers, and matchers all can— and do— achieve success.  But there’s something distinctive that happens when givers succeed: it spreads and cascades.  When takers win, there’s usually someone else who loses.  Research shows that people tend to envy successful takers and look for ways to knock them down a notch.  In contrast, when [givers] win, people are rooting for them and supporting them, rather than gunning for them.  Givers succeed in a way that creates a ripple effect, enhancing the success of people around them.  You’ll see that the difference lies in how giver success creates value, instead of just claiming it."
