This is a good post; I wish some of the people I work with would read it and take it to heart.

There are no shortcuts to building good networks and sometimes you need to offer help without any real expectation of getting anything in return. Often you get nothing back, especially these days.

Interestingly, when dealing with my farming neighbors, I never run into this problem. Its only the "city" folk that I have trouble with. My neighbors keep pretty accurate records of who owes whom in their heads. My farming neighbors have some other problems, but lack of personal responsibility and reciprocity are not among them.
