The Point

Take time out of your business to travel, sit, and talk face to face with people. Cancel important things. Cut your business profits. Ax. Hack. Chop off something you are doing that needs to be done. Make the sacrifice that won’t kill you so that other people can encounter you in the flesh.

Sometimes it is rejuvenating and your own work list actually gets more items checked-off after a personal encounter. You need that encounter as much as other people do.

Some face-to-face time helps relationships because it’s the right thing to do, costing everyone less time in the end.
