Compound interest

If you're not taking the time to invest in [your partner's] organization, you're probably not going to get much out of it. That advice is true for any relationship. If you want to get something out of it, you better invest in it. – Chris Messina via

Compound interest takes time to build, but eventually takes off to form a hockey stick-type curve. At first, the graph looks unimpressive. But by doing long slow (sometimes boring) diligent work, the investment starts to take off.

Partnerships are the same way. It takes time to get to know your partners. But if you put in the work, and invest in your partner's success, your compound interest starts to grow, and hockey stick curves are bound to come your way.
