It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Pinkcast, video clips from Dan Pink that offered useful advice typically in less than two minutes.
One of Dan’s recent Pinkcasts deals with a dilemma many of us have faced.
The thought comes into your head to get in touch with a friend you haven’t communicated with in a long time.
But you hesitate, usually because of two fears:
- you think it will be an awkward conversation.
- the other person won’t really care if you reach out to them or not.
Well, according to Dan, research has shown that we are wrong on both counts.
It won’t be nearly as awkward as we imagine, and the person does care that you reached out.
So Dan says the solution to the dilemma can be summed up in five words:
When in doubt, reach out.
Here’s the Pinkcast:
