Someone came to our meeting this week who used to be one of regular network members. I was grateful to see him again and reconnect. In reconnecting with him, I realized he would have been a good resource for a project that I participated in last year. Unfortunately, because he was off the radar, I hadn't thought of him.
It was a reminder how important it is to stay connected to stay present in the minds of others. You never know when the opportune time occurs and when you are visible, it is easier for people to think of you when the time is right.
