It's 11:18pm and I just got back from my last event for the day. It has been a long but great day. This has been a day of making and remaking connections. I met many people who I have known by email or blog, but never in person until today. That's cool, because the conversation just picks up where it was before.
Thanks to EM Sky for being my connector and evangelist for the Fayetteville Library talk - they are delightful people and the library has a lot of wonderful energy.
Thanks to Karen and James for making the long drive to come to my talk. It was so great to meet you in person.
Thanks to Craig for being the connector and evangelist for the Birmingham event (he is here in Atlanta for the ASTD conference, so I just met him today).
At the ASTD conference, Keith Ferrazzi was the morning keynote speaker. He did a great job as always. I like the way he stresses the importance of intimacy in business relationships and says it, "go deep fast." Get beyond the chit chat quickly. I love his book Never Eat Alone and am grateful to Keith for writing the forward to Focus Like a Laser Beam.
My brain is fried and I have an 8:15am event, so bye bye for now.
