What if we were to recast networking as friendshipping — it would become a whole other level of connecting, wouldn’t it? Think of it this way, you’re extending your friendship beyond your immediate circles.
Some friendships are pervasive, all the time, like air. Some are orbital, your point of contact comes around at regular intervals, be it weekly or monthly or even yearly. Some are asteroidal, infrequent but still significant to you.
Friendship is thoughtfulness. It’s connecting meaningfully. You only do it with those who make an impact on you. And for whom you can make a real contribution, however small.
When you extend those principles outward you are friendshipping your way into greater spheres of engagement.
