And I thought that this was enough.
Now with the summer of 2021 finally upon us, the weather is more welcoming; COVID-related masking restrictions easing, the world is beginning to once again revert to the way it was. It is now that I realize that...
I miss the company of strangers.
I suppose what I miss is the momentary connection that helps validate that our world is moving in the right direction. The momentary eye contact, the banter at the grocery check-out, the sharing, the learning, the smile…
I have been taught since high school that human beings are social creatures. But we know that experience is the best teacher of all.
So I want to thank COVID for helping me rediscover the joy that is the company of strangers.
This is an important revelation for me because I believe that this is also an important theme for our GRO communities. GRO, in essence, is the mechanism by which strangers come together to collectively achieve more than they could as individuals. Those communities that embrace a process that enables strangers to connect, share and contribute are the ones that will progress towards prosperity.
