Catching up with the past

Today I spent the day at a golf outing for my former high school football team.  It was a great day because I got to see a lot of my buddies that I have not seen in years.  It was great catching up with them and hearing all about their families and career’s.  It’s a shame that we have not kept in contact with each other and tried to get together more often.  A couple of my closest friends from high school live in different parts of the country so it is hard to see each other more than once or twice a year but what is surprising to find out is a majority of them live within 20 minutes of me and I never knew that.

With the fast pace world we live in it is understandable to lose contact with friends you don’t see every day but then again we do live in the technology age where everything is at our finger tips so really there is no excuse to loss contact with friends from around the country.  It all comes down to time management.  Think about it, how long does it take you to send an email to your best friend to say hello and your thinking about them?  What about a quick five minute phone call just to check in?

It doesn’t take much time at all to call each of your closest friends once a month.  I am sure if you are like me, you waste more time flipping through TV stations than it would take on making those calls.  Life is short and you never know what can happen.  Start tomorrow to incorporate 15 – 20 minutes a day into your schedule to make those calls or to send an email to a long lost friend. 

A great way to locate your friends that seem to have dropped off the face of the earth is www.LinkedIn.com.  It is a social networking site for professionals.  I am sure that these other two sites you have heard of, www.myspace.com and www.facebook.com

Well, that’s it for tonight.  It has been a long and exciting day so it is bed time.

Best wishes,
Rick Hyde
