Today I joined an intro meeting only to realize that I already know the other person. We’re not close but have been in the same circles for over a decade. Catching up, we realized that our work overlaps, so we can help each other. Here’s what I was thinking as I left the meeting:
- The world is smaller than I think.
- You never know where life will take you or others.
- Relationships matter a lot, even if they aren’t super deep.
- Being nice is easy, feels goods, and can pay dividends many years later.
I’m glad we finally got to know each other after all these years, and I’m looking forward to working with him.
