After taking a few months off to travel and enjoy the Christmas holidays, I’m back.
Today I’ve got something cool to share with you. The video above.
Personally, I think I still have a lot of room for improvement when it comes to my speaking. Don’t get me wrong, I can have casual conversations with people easily, but explaining ideas on camera is a totally different skill I still need to work on.
So one of my goals this year is to become a better teacher and more captivating on video. This first video is the beginning.
As a wise man once said: “Sucking at something is the first step to being sorta good at something.”
The Friendship Equation
In the video I explain a simple two-part equation you can use to build better friendships and relationships with people. The equation is:
Frequency of Contact x Intensity of Contact
In other words, the quality of any friendship you have is going to be the direct result of…
- How often you see or hear from each other. (If you live with someone, you’ll get to know them very well quickly for better or worse.)
- How memorable are the experiences you share with them. (Someone you go out and have adventures with is going to become a good friend much sooner than someone you sit around and watch TV with.)
Honestly the content in this video is not too complicated. The real question to ask yourself is: are you actually doing it? Do you make an effort to stay in touch frequently and share unique experiences with people?
If not, then you’ll have a hard time making friends. And these are two huge mistakes that I see a lot of lonely people making.
What Else Is New?
After having a lot of crazy adventures in South America, I’m ready to get back to work with helping people overcome their shyness and social anxiety.
I have some big plans and ideas to share with you in the future.
As you probably noticed, this website looks totally different (and better!) than it did before.
More changes and more frequent updates are also coming!
