🤔 Final Thought 🤔

Reflecting on something I have enjoyed a lot this year: I have deliberately spent time meeting more people, smart people, especially those outside of my day to day work, why? To get different perspectives, learn and get back to what we were built to do. Talk.
As an extroverted introvert (blame the Marketing roles), it is an investment but connecting and meeting new people has really given me a better and broader view of what and why I do what I do.
Why not review your calendar (it’s one of my recommended productivity hacks) and go for a few coffees (teas or juices) with smart people, actually talk - talk about a variety of things, you never know what friendship or opportunities might come up.


👏You made it to the end 👏
