Better to Receive than to Give

They say it’s better to give than to receive. How silly. I haven’t given any gifts in years — but I receive plenty and it’s awesome.

It is obviously better to receive than to give. Who wouldn’t want that? That old adage is just an all-too-clever ploy to get people to give more gifts so that others — like myself — can receive. It’s a brilliant idea.

And it’s working, by the way.

I have received everything from fruitcake to sweaters to light-up ties to parking tickets this season!

On the other hand…
Try it both ways and see what you think. Many wealthy men spent decades earning a fortune only to find greater joy and fulfillment in giving it away. Research it for yourself if you don’t agree!

Name your favorite gift this year. Do you think you enjoyed getting it more than the giver enjoyed giving it?
