CONNECTING THE DOTS ONE AT A TIME

Who is Liz?

Funny how sometimes, words whirl around in your head and then you see a post that resonates with you. Last night I spent a long long time on one post by my friend Liz. She was pondering about connecting friends, ideas and words. She is the consummate connector because there is a refreshing generosity about her. She will start a conversation, step aside and let you in. This morning I found the ultimate description in a Fast Company article on Sylvia Paull, a well-known Silicon Valley connector.

What Liz does is "intentionally serendipitous". This is the deliberate intent of creating connections and discoveries by accident. Is that an oxymoron or what?

Wow, I gotta say that again. Intentionally serendipitous.

How might I play with this? Vernun has done it again! Come right in with his heart shining and open like a beautiful melody.

Positively ubiquitious. How might he see so much? He invests in his friends. For someone who calls himself Idea Dude, this fellow has harmonies of heart and soul.

Every song he sings is filled with how is exceptionally generous himself.
