Humans today manage more relationships than at any other time in history. Our digital networks alone can include thousands of people, so it’s inevitable that some of those connections might fall by the wayside through nobody’s fault. If you’ve ever missed an email or forgotten to respond to someone that reached out to you, you might feel guilty and assume that the other person was hurt and doesn’t want to hear from you again.
In practice, the opposite is true. In this 5 Minute Pick Me Up we discuss why it’s always better late than never to reach back out to a lost contact or to follow up with someone that’s dropped off your radar. Even a quick check in is an opportunity to make someone feel appreciated and the chance to reignite a relationship that might lead to incredible personal and/or professional outcomes.
