It was just a random catchup. Someone I’d not seen for two years and had no real interest to connect with as time was precious that morning. I said a quick hello and passed by this old colleague.
We met at the same event some minutes later and felt obliged to chat about what had transpired in the last years since meeting. We both had both taken different roads and this is where things became interesting. Our differences were unique and interesting. Our skills has expanded and were complementary. Within 10 minutes we had developed a new product/solution for the market and agreed to meet in the coming days to develop it further.
1. Value the differences between people
2. Don’t expect people will remain the same years down the track
3. Make time for the random connections with people.
Id be interested to hear stories of similar “random connections“.
