πŸ’¬ I Have Time for You

Replied to I Have Time for You. by Andrea Stringer
Your actions should be authentic and your interest should be genuine. Surround yourself with people who are supportive, not sycophantic. Invest in your friendships but be cautiously selective, as it is a two-way street.
I have found myself writing letters personally thinking colleagues who have left this year. However, you really have me wonder whether that is in fact too late?

Here I am reminded of Matt Esterman’s challenge
(https://medium.com/@matt_esterman/of-giants-and-wisdom-f2b7a71eb35b) in receiving the Dr Brock Award:

“We all stand on the shoulder of giants, even when they’re seated. Even when they’re no longer with us.

I challenge you in the next week to identify someone who has had a positive influence on you, who has coached you, mentored you, challenged you, scared you, into being a better version of you. Find them. Thank them.”

I wonder what it is that holds us back? Is it fear? Career progression? Has me thinking, but maybe I’ll just start by saying thank you.

    Agree that it would be good to catch up. Was good meeting up last year. #ittakesavillage
