There were several people I intended on connecting with. Relationships I wanted to build. I didn’t connect with any of them.
A wasted trip.
I could have put time on calendars, setup appointments. I could have written specific goals before going.
I just showed up. The conference had a set agenda that took two full days. No room for my plans. Without setting my own agenda I was swept into theirs.
- What needs to go on today’s To-Do list?
- What do you need to ask someone else for?
- Why is this important?
- What’s the point of spending the energy?
- What result will it contribute to?
Set your own agenda or someone else will.
