In the pre-retirement class I took recently, a speaker who discussed "Networking" for job-finding said:

You help other people, they help you ten times over!

That's good advice, though perhaps the 10:1 ratio is a bit too optimistic. If it were that high there would probably be a runaway chain reaction of helpfulness—and the World would be a lot nicer place than it actually seems to be!
