When we choose to disconnect, we connect!

When we choose to disconnect, we connect!

When we chose to disconnect, we connect! We start sharing our stories and meeting each other again with a smile on our faces in the most unexpected places. This is Will Clark, one of my advisees and a student here at the university. We had a great conversation today about how our break went which led to us to speak about academic advising and course selection… life.

It happened organically, off-line and during the day. I was waiting for a colada smoothie and he was sitting down studying in the lobby. It just happened. We weren’t on our phones. I had an abundance of happiness outside cyberspace and I loved it.

I’m convinced of this — In the new economy, having trust, connection and proximity to others is a currency. We don’t build the former very well by only chatting with others on social media networks. It is so much easier to tell our stories face-to-face!

Live your life to the fullest and connect with people. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
