I had a chance to play golf this morning, so early that I was the first one off the tee. Two other guys showed up after I hit, but wasn’t interested in playing. As I bounded around the course, I was thinking how this could have been a great opportunity to meet a couple of new people. Last week, I played with a third-year medical student (Neil); we had many enlightening conversations and played some pretty great golf together.
For today, here’s a chance for you to look at developing relationships in a much different way. What if you lived your life as an “opportunity maker,” where you could find ways to connect people with diverse backgrounds to create something magical? Here’s a TED Talk that might inspire you to create a mutuality mindset and be an opportunity maker:
Be an Opportunity Maker: Kare Anderson (TED Talk) – https://www.ted.com/talks/kare_anderson_be_an_opportunity_maker
Would love to hear any thoughts about her video or about developing the mutuality mindset.
P.S. I liked her video so much that I got her book, “Mutuality Matters: How You Can Create More Opportunity Adventure & Friendship With Others.”
