Two Minute Drill: Connection
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is connection. I am here at Georgetown University to teach master’s students about complementary and alternative medicine. It is always a great time, these young minds are just ready to take on the world.
Strengthen Your Connection
Being on campus makes me think a lot about the connections that I built while I was in college, many years ago. In fact, I was really lucky because this past weekend I got to spend almost 48 hours with some of my closest friends from college, and the connection and being together was phenomenal. For me, the connection that I felt with these guys might have been as strong as I’ve ever experienced. I believe part of the reason is that I have a stronger connection to myself. I have a stronger understanding of what makes me tick and the areas where I want to learn how to improve and grow as a human being.
As I told you in one of my Two Minute Drills way back in October when my parents were diagnosed with COVID and I was going through a lot of stress, I was going to start exploring some mental health options and get some counseling, and I’ve done that. I’ve been doing it now for the past 10 months. It’s made a huge difference for me, understanding how my upbringing and my experiences growing up has shaped my thoughts and shaped my behaviors, and because of that, I’ve gained a greater understanding and connection to myself, I’m able to have a much greater connection to the people that are in my life. That has and is going to continue to make a big difference for me.
So I encourage you to strengthen your connection with yourself through counseling or otherwise so that you can continue to strengthen your connection with others because isn’t that what life is about?
that’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Have a great week and see you all on Thursday for this month’s webinar around metrics.
