Who would you enjoy sharing a meal with? I’m thinking of someone you would value learning from and hearing their perspectives? In my work, Barbara Fredrickson is on my top ten list. Or, should I say, was on my list. Last night I had the opportunity and delight to have dinner with her and two other friends. It was energizing and stimulating to have a conversation with someone who dives into the deep end of the research pool each day exploring the ways to positively and sustainable impact people. The only thing I regret is that I didn’t take a picture to keep for memory sake and to share with you. I’m sentimental that way. You would likely appreciate her work personally. I’ve talked about her book Positivity before.
Back to my earlier question; who would you enjoy spending some time with that could open your eyes and mind to new insights in your world personally or professionally? May I encourage you to step out and do something to make that meeting happen. You’d be amazed what’s possible when you try. Hum, I think I need to think about the other nine interesting people on my list. And, add a new tenth.
