“No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.” — Theodore Roosevelt
Yes, Valentine’s Day is a wonderful reminder to us that we should be sure to let our loved ones know how much we cherish them. It’s also a reminder about how much “care” is really synonymous with love. When you love someone, you care about them, deeply. It’s as simple as that…..…and this year, for my Valentine’s Day message, that is exactly what I want to focus on.
How to Master Relationships in ALL Areas of Your Life?
Try to remember this quick little 4-Step formula:
- & CARE ABOUT
Relationships are important at home, at work and in ALL of our daily interactions.
How you can be a success when living, working, and dealing with people is to apply the
Know, Like, Trust and CARE principle to your entire life.
For me, it is my:
- 38-year relationship with my husband John
- 14+-year relationship with my son, John Robert
- My over 40 years of relationships with several special friends
- My many years of relationships with parents, in-laws and siblings
- And also many years of relationships with several service providers like my doctor, my dentist, my financial advisor, and my hairdresser.
In fact, my hairdresser is a perfect example I’d like to share with you regarding someone that I know, like, trust and CARE about. I have been a customer of hers for 48 years. I always enjoy going to see her—and drive 30 minutes to get to her salon every 8 weeks—like clockwork. In fact, I graduated high school with her son, Joe. She and I really have a mutual respect for each other, and we both know each other’s families. She is a special friend. She’s one of the most genuine service providers that I know. She always makes me feel special, and I know that she CARES.
I hope that you understand the way that this 4-step model works. If you do, you can really improve all your relationships.

Finally, don’t forget to express how you feel to the people that you love.
In the month of February, let’s all make a special effort to show people that we CARE.
