Human moments

Connect over coffee.
Discovered this paper on The Human Moment at Work, an article covering the necessity for humans to have engaged, face-to-face time with the people they work with.  It's commonly known but something that I find people are rarely purposeful about at work.

"To make the human moment work, you have to set aside what you’re doing, put down the memo you were reading, disengage from your laptop, abandon your daydream, and focus on the person you’re with. 

Usually when you do that, the other person will feel the energy and respond in kind.  Together, you quickly create a force field of exceptional power."

You probably did this a few times today, but it's a good reminder that these daily interactions, that coffee, that roll over to your colleague's desk really mattered.
