QOTD – Connections, Connections, Connections
I really want to emphasize the importance of introducing yourself to people, and taking advantage of every possible opportunity you can. These opportunities are all over the place, all the time. It’s very important that you keep talking to people and meeting new people about what you are working on or thinking about.
There are SO many great stories of serendipitous meetings that led on to deep, meaningful relationships. I believe that Serendipity trumps Strategy 90% of the time.
One of my favorite quotes is by a soccer coach whose team lost in one of the critical stages of the World Cup. He said, “We were out-chanced.”
That’s a beautiful quote – he meant that the other team set-up many more shots on goal than they did, and as a result, had scored a greater number of goals. Constantly keep creating new chances for yourself, be constantly connecting with people.
