Connect Meaningfully. 14 Dec 2010

Connect Meaningfully.

 

We have so many ways nowadays in which we can connect with one another yet we usually choose the one way that prevents any kind of real connection.

 

We go for Facebook status updates, we pop off emails quicker than anything else and we bombard the world with our blog entries. We want to get information out there. We want decisions made quickly. We say we want to connect but do we really?

 

When was the last time you picked up the phone to have a quick chat with someone rather than pop an email across? Sure, there are times we need a paper trail. However, sometimes it is that much more efficient for us to pick up the phone and talk to someone. You are connecting in real time, you can assess the situation and see how the person on the other side is reacting. There’s a wealth of information in this sort of real two-way communication that you cant achieve by batting emails up and down or updating your Linkedin account.

 

If we want to connect meaningfully with someone, sometimes the best way to do it, is in person or by simply picking up the phone.

If we want to really deal with a situation and get closure on an issue, sometimes talking to the person face to face is the best move forward.
