Mindful Everyday Moment: #76 when the dots connect

#76 - when the dots connect

On family road trips, we would play the alphabet game, roadside cribbage, the license plate game, twenty questions, and connect-the-dots. We were an analog family because analog was the only option. 

Today, I was speaking at the Positivity Summit, and before I walked on stage, it occurred to me that I was playing connect-the-dots. 

Cornell Thomas, a great guy putting great vibes into the world, hosted the conference, and as he was introducing me, he mentioned that he wasn't sure how we met, but I remembered. We met in 2020, but the universe started to bring us together dating back to 2014, if not earlier. 

Let me explain.

In 2014, I left my corporate career of twenty-two years for entrepreneurship, and a fellow coach told me about this guy who grew up in Western NY as I did. His name is Seth Godin. 

So I started following Seth, liking what he was sharing, and enrolled in his altMBA program. Then in 2016, I saw him speak in NYC and met Ramon Ray, who is full-gas energy. 

In 2018, Ramon held a conference, so I went to support him. There I heard Claude Silver speak. She's the Chief Heart Officer (best title ever) at VanyerMedia. A few months later, I met with Claude, and she told me about Bryan Falchuk - a total mensch.  

Well, Bryan had a podcast, and he invited Cornell and me to join him for a triad conversation in the early days of the pandemic. 

And that's how Cornell and I met.  

Here's the thing, you never know where you're dots will lead. You might meet someone today that will lead to a beautiful relationship in the future. That's why it's important to bring mindfulness to your everyday moments because if you don't, you might miss your next dot.
