It’s the time of the year for back-to-school chaos. My friends, who are not from the Northeast, have already been back for a while – but we don’t start up until after Labor Day.
This season always makes me think of people I went to school with; friends I have lost touch with.
Have you thought about getting back in touch with friends or colleagues that you haven’t talked to in a long time? What stops you? Let me guess… it feels weird? It has been so long? You don’t really have a reason.
People often ask me, “How long is too long?” If you have been reading my blog, you know what my answer will be… It is never too long!
If you want to reconnect with an old acquaintance – just do it. It’s never too late. Just acknowledge that it’s been a really long time, tell them why they’ve been on your mind, and suggest getting back in touch.
I’ve sent many emails with the subject line, “It’s been too long,” or, “Let’s reconnect.” Feel free to borrow those and reach out to someone you want to get back in touch with during the back-to-school season.
Here’s my ‘back-to-school’ picture – this is me on my first day of kindergarten, with Ricky Davis.
Have a great time reconnecting!
