Two Minute Drill: 40 Years of Friendship
What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is friendship. This past weekend, seven friends of mine and I, who I’ve been friends with for 40 years. We spent time in the mountains in New York, hanging out, catching up, eating some good food, drinking some good wine, having some cocktails, and just being together and sharing what’s been going on in our lives for the past year.
The Joy of Reconnecting
We pretty much do this every year, and it’s just a great experience to reconnect with our friends in person, spend time, and share.
Research shows how important close friendships are. They improve our happiness and our mental well-being. They actually help to improve our overall health.
There’s some research that shows that people who have strong friendships do better financially as well. Now, that’s not the reason I have these strong, close friendships, but it is a nice little perk at the end of the day.
Here’s my call to action for you: if there’s a friend of yours that you haven’t kept connected with within the last month, two months, or year, reach out, make that call, send that text, shoot over that email. Because reconnecting with your friends is a really important way to improve your overall happiness and your life.
So, reach out, don’t think twice about it. Reach out and reconnect with your friends.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Make sure that if you have any comments, share them on social and not just independently send texts to me like you did last week when I did my whole computer Mac thing.
Share with others so that others can reconnect as well. You guys have a great week, and I’ll talk to y’all next week.
