Stop Saying You're "Too Busy" To Connect With The People Who Mean The Most To You
Today is a quick assignment. But first, I wanted to remind you that the entire point of this is that you text me after you read this. If you recall when you signed up, I'm trying to create true engagement with you. So... if you are reading this, please text me after, my direct number is below.
If you don't want to do that I'm 1000% cool with you unsubscribing. I won't be offended. Slightly annoyed, but not offended. :)
"Cutting people out of your life is easy, keeping them in is hard?."
So let's make this quick and easy today. I have an assignment for you.
I want you to think about the person you appreciate the most in your life who you don't connect with as much anymore. Someone who was/is always there for you but you lost touch with on a personal level. You know, before social media, when you actually talked to people, in person.
This could be a sibling, a college friend, a long lost lover, a former co-worker, a mentor, whomever. Somebody who you used to be close to. Someone who means something to you that you lost touch with for whatever reason.
Now I want you to call them, not text them, not Facebook message them... call them in the next three hours or less. And I want you to say something like, "I was thinking about you. We never talk anymore because we're both so busy. We never get together. Let's rectify that. Are you available for coffee, or a drink or lunch later or tomorrow or this weekend or tonight? Just wanted to reconnect, even if it's for ten minutes."
If they're not local and you can't meet with them, a phone call is just fine.
They're going to say they're too busy to meet, even for ten minutes. Do NOT let them off the hook. Go to them if you have to. Pick a coffee shop or restaurant close to their home or office. Make it easy for them so they can't say no.
After you make the call and set it up, I want you to text me and tell me who you contacted, and why this person means so much to you and when you're meeting.
That's it, simple, yet oh so hard to do, right? Can you do it? Will you do it? What could come out of it? A rekindled friendship? A new relationship? A new career? What "could" happen? Find out.
Text me now. (216) 236-8294
