Do you want to be a super connector? It is simple. Connecting people whom you know with each other. It is like combining two different words and making magic. Many times, we have relationships which can’t create value – some of them are emotional. If you can combine two different people – you are creating a new synergy.
In a casual coffee meet up with some friends, there came a guy whom I know for sometime and he was chatting with me. He was an investment banker on a holiday in Kochi. I felt there could be some value which can happen if I connect with one of the guys in my coffee group. I gave a decent intro to each other and there they connected well. After a year, I found them to be working together on a startup idea. This kind of ‘connecting people’ is important in creating a robust ecosystem which can help businesses to thrive.
You can do a lot. When you do, stay away from thinking ‘what is it for me’. When you listen to beautiful music composed by talented musicians free of cost in YouTube, do musicians think ‘this guy is listening to my music free of cost’. More the views, more value. We should aim to be super connectors. Like content creators who produce content and freely broadcast or publish, they look for the rockstar value they get out of it and they can find other ways to monetise it.
Ok, now whom are you going to connect today with?
