As most of us do at this time of year, I've began to consider what goals I'd like to achieve during 2016. On my list, I've got the typical entries; eat more vegetables, get to the gym four times each week, but I've decided to dig a little deeper and challenge myself - this year, I want to connect.
In my own traditional terms, connect means find new connections on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn. These are great ways to add to my list of "friends" - but do I truly feel connected to those people? If I saw them at the grocery store, would I feel comfortable greeting them?
This year, the answer is yes! My New Year's resolution is full of coffee dates, networking, and a couple instances of "Hey! I think we're connected on LinkedIn!" I'm really looking forward to investing my time in building and maintaining personal relationships, especially within our group.
As part of this initiative, I encourage each and every one of you to join us on January 22nd at Blue Blood Brewing Company - it's a FREE event for ATD Lincoln members and guests are welcome for just $5.
I'm really looking forward to this year, and can't wait to connect with you soon!
