While giving without expecting anything in return is the best way to fill someone’s bucket, there are also forces that can dip into that reservoir. Think about the last interaction you had with a coworker, friend, or manager.
Is there a chance that you:
Checked your phone while they shared a vulnerable story?
Blamed someone else rather than taking ownership?
These are ways we dip into another’s bucket.
If you find outside factors, like stress, impacting your attitude, check in with your own buckets.
What have you been neglecting that could use some balance?
