If I had to characterize one quality as the genius of female thought, culture, and action, it would be the connectivity.  Robin Morgan

Here are some simple ways to make connections with others.  You can do this – and it makes a difference for you and the one(s) with whom you are connecting.
  1. Write notes.
  2. Use social media.
  3. Go to lunch
  4. Meet for coffee
  5. Make a phone call.
  6. Send a card.
  7. Give a hug.
  8. Take food.
  9. Put others in touch with one another.
  10. Recommend a book.

Just because these are short doesn’t mean they are to be dismissed.  They are deceptively simple.  You really can make an effort on one of these today – and see what positive connections occur.  To stay with the theme of being productive, ask someone (via email, at lunch, on the phone, in a store) for a recommendation of a great productivity idea.  People love to share their secrets on this topic.  Believe me, I know this!!
