Think of all the people you ignore in a day, a week, a year. The fellow commuters you never talk to, all those people you didn’t say hello to at that party last Saturday, the neighbors you never greet, the friendly faces at your place of worship whose eye-contact you avoid, the co-workers you see floating around the office and choose to ignore, the three old guys sitting at the next table at the café.
It’s a proven fact that making an instant connection with any one of them could have had a life-changing impact on your outlook, your confidence, your career, your bottom line and your lucky breaks.
Connecting with strangers isn’t just the right thing to do: it’s a matter of survival.
