Connection

I use all kinds of digital tools, both hardware (devices) and software (apps).

In fact, not to toot my own horn, I’d say I’m more advanced that the average person when it comes to the use of technology.

I can navigate my way around pretty much any system.

That’s not a big deal, but I say all of this to make a point:

The most valuable tools that I use are analog, not digital.

The most valuable skills that I possess are soft, not hard.

These are tools and skills such as: being prepared (with pen & paper), making good eye contact, being vulnerable, establishing trust, and seeking to help others.

Using technology more and more doesn’t make you more and more connected to other people.

Working to deepen your connections to other people does.
