In episode 536 of “Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do”, host Thom Singer does a quick catch up about the podcast and his career. He talks about why it is so important to “Choose People” and not gadgets.
He also shares some tips from his keynote speech “The Secret Weapon: Connecting with People in a Gadget-Crazed World”. Are you choosing people in this busy would full of distractions? Do you continue to build your network? Is your network diverse? Are you adding people. Are you helping others succeed by sending referrals to others regularly? These are just a few questions he provides to make you think about your own secret weapon (your network). Choosing people is key. But we also need to take the time to notice others. People are experiencing greater levels of loneliness, even in our digitally connected world.
