Engage!

I can still hear the word "Engage" echo in the voice of Patrick Stewart as Jean Luc Picard at the end of an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Engaging all life everywhere- what a cool mission.

Engaging and connecting with others is the most powerful thing you can do. By engaging, I mean seeking to connect. Reaching out to get know what is going on with another human being (engaging). Being inquisitive and curious to find out what life is like for another human being right now. And then, finding some common ground in order to share and relate to each other (connecting).

I know of no other action that benefits all human beings involved so greatly. It is what a parent needs to do with their child- no matter what age. It is what spouses need to do with each other. What leaders need to do with their team members. What friends need to do with each other. It always deepens any relationship.

And then there is engaging with people you do not yet know. It creates mutually beneficial success with love interests, business, sales, new friends, teachers, followers.

But yet we do it so seldomly. Rather, we choose stay in our own little world. Why? Engaging requires us to risk. Engaging is messy. It causes us to get some on us. Sometimes it is awkward. Much safer to stay in our little bubble.

Why not engage and uplift everyone you come in contact with? Once you connect with them you can figure out what the connection is about. They could be a new friend, business partner, romantic interest, or a catalyst to help you change. Or someone that connects you with one of those- or you them.

But you will never know if you don't say "hi". And then later ask inquisitively, "So what is that like for you?"

Nice techno-nostalgia. My college roommate had a Commodore 64, I had an Atari 800. They compared favorably to each other, but I envied the RAM in the C-64.
