This morning I was working out and my son came up to me and kissed both my feet and then  went over to my wife and kissed hers.  I thought this was pretty interesting, that is for a two year old boy.  I thought it was really interesting actually, not because of the biblical implications “), but because of why he did this.

You see the night before, he whacked his toe against a wood pillar by our staircase.  He cried for a bit and kept on running.  But his toe started to bleed, so we stopped him, cleaned it up and gave him kisses on his toes.

Well after that, all he wanted was more kisses.  He wanted to be nurtured and cared for.  He wanted love and to feel better.  That’s it. Nothing else mattered until he went to sleep.

The next morning he kisses our feet…

What’s the point here?

Your linkedin contacts are like my son. “) They want to feel cared for, nurtured, know that you have their best interest in mind.  If you do this right, they will kiss your feet later.
