“Ideas, bread, and books are all the same. They’re better when they are shared.”

Two popular holiday stories we all know quite well are A Christmas Carol, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Both stories portray their main character as selfish and self-centered, focusing only on what’s in it for themselves.

As Adam Grant demonstrates in his well-researched book, Give and Take, these characters are definitely takers. They may win in some situations, but lose in the long run.


Where and with whom can you generously share your ideas, bread, and books, to have the happiest of holidays and a more richly rewarding new year?
