It is believed that there is 6 degrees of separation between people you know. I’d like to think that there are fewer degrees than that. Let me tell you why.
I had a meeting with someone on Friday. She was telling me her background and experience. She made a statement, and I started having flashbacks to a conversation I had with someone in a different venue over five years ago. For the life of me, I don’t know how or why that memory came back to me at that time, but it did.
So, I shared this to say two things.
First, you don’t know who knows who, so it’s best not to talk about anybody in a bad way. If you just feel the need to do so, make up a name. Actually, it would be best to just be quiet.
Second, because I personally feel that there are fewer than six degrees of separation, I will meeting Steve Jobs or Bill Gates really soon.
