Minisode Monday #68 | An Everyday Way to Renew Contact with Old Acquaintances

Welcome to Minisode Monday, where we kick off the week with something quick and actionable — to make you more magnetic and effective — that you can implement right away.

This time around, we talk about an easy, everyday habit you can cultivate to renew contact with old acquaintances (lest they — and you — be forgot)!

Let’s get to it!

The Cheat Sheet:

  • Every single day, text one or two people with whom you haven’t spoken in a while.
  • If you use social media: As guest David Burkus recommended when he was on the show: use your newsfeed. Instead of merely “liking” something about which your old acquaintance is posting on social media, send a text or email.
  • If you don’t use social media, open your phone’s text messaging app and scroll all the way down — the people at the bottom are the ones you haven’t spoken to in ages. Greet them with a sentence or two to let them know you’re thinking of them, and make it clear a return response isn’t required.
  • Let us know how you put today’s Minisode Monday into practice! Tweet with @TheArtofCharm in your response or write to Jordan directly: [email protected] (he actually reads everything)!
