As summer begins its rollout and school and the fall begins their approach, I’m blown away by the what simply getting out this summer has provided for me…and hopefully for you!
With my son’s scout troop last week for 6 days of summer camp in the Sequoias, it was proven to me once again that you never knowwho is surrounding you…so it behooves us all to extend a hand and find out! Under a jerry-rigged tarp to cover an outside picnic table where us few scout dads who brought our laptops could tap into the camp’s wireless, I engaged with another scout leader and found out we can help each other.
The simple question “What do you do?” is something that amazingly few people ask but which opens up so many doors for conversation, connections, collaboration, and contacts! Folks, you just never know who is around you…and it really, REALLY pays to check in with the Universe!
What you are seeking is seeking you! You just have to introduce yourself to it!
