My personal criteria for networking outreach:
Does it put more love into the world?
Am I unattached to the outcome?
Often, being highly strategic about timing/content/whether to reach out is really about a perceived power differential, an attempt to create control, an inability to trust the boundaries of others, or self-protection.
All are very human. ✅
These are my criteria, which I’ve shared with thousands of people at this point.
1. More Love = Truth, admiration, respect, curiosity, interest, gratitude, etc.
2. Unattached = I’ll be cool with me and I’ll be cool with them even if I don’t get the response I would prefer.
