Yesterday, a good friend called 10-minutes before a critical meeting. Normally, I’d just ignore and call back later, but instead, I picked up and said, “I’d love to talk, but only have 5 minutes.”
Those 5-minutes were magical. We managed to quickly update each other on summer plans, agree to explore a business partnership, and traded class recommendations.
All in 5-minutes. I felt invigorated. And, hooked. I can always talk for 5-minutes.
So today, take your bar for connection down a notch. Kick off the 5-minute catch up with a few friends. Trust me, it’s amazing.
P.S. If you are a friend of mine, I’d love to have a 5-minute catch up. Call me.
