As the workweeks progress we tend to get wrapped up in our day-to-day tasks. When the to-dos stack up it is natural to lose sight of the importance of connecting with others. Can you find just 5 minutes to schedule a breakfast, brunch, coffee, lunch, drink or dinner with someone important to you? Personal or professional, identify someone you haven’t seen in a while (and want to see again – this part is critical) and reach out to them. Tell them why you are reaching out and get something on the calendar. Even if the next open date is a month or two off, when the date comes around you will be glad you just booked it – and so will the other person.
