Making Connections

Social– Activity: Make Connections

Tim Sanders describes an exercise from his book “The Likeablity Factor” in a post on his blog, Sanders Says, called “Develop a Sincere Interest.” It’s a great way to make connections with the people in your life. Here’s a summary of the steps:

  1. Write down the names of your most frequent contacts.
  2. Write down the interests and hobbies they are passionate about. If you’re not sure, ask them.
  3. Write down the interests and hobbies you are passionate about. The exercise in my post on quality leisure may be helpful.
  4. Note any instersections of shared passions.
  5. Note any contact interests you might enjoy trying yourself.
  6. Note intersections of shared interests between your contacts who may not know each other, and introduce them.

This is one of the weekly activities for a Year of Personal Development.

I seek to create order from the chaos of complex information. Join me at the Daily PlanIt to gain insights, inspiration, and information to increase skills for a better life. I unlock the power of teaching reading with phonics in the pursuit of literacy at In my spare time I explore books and movies, often choosing titles available on both screen and page.
