Today I want to talk about the essential need to strengthen connections. When talking with a former colleague of mine, who mentioned Greg Bell’s Oregon Public Broadcasting presentation last night, again I was reminded of the power of face to face contact. In this highly digitized world, we still need our circles of support and while the digital world may allow us to stay connected over miles, countries and time zones – staying connected to one another face to face is necessary.
The other interesting virtual connection I made, that actually benefited one of my face to face meetings was Celestine Chua’s free e-book on creating a bucket list. I think this topic is so important right now, as we are in the midst of our continual grieving with the many wars of the world, the deaths in Reno, the famine and heartache that exists every day. How do we REALLY live in the here and now?
