The time we spend together as friends, family, or coworkers, is invaluable. Each opportunity provides a path to getting to know each other better. The best time in my eye to associate, is at a dining table. People tend to let loose when their taste buds are being stimulated. So, look for opportunities where you can set a table, and have a few of the people you appreciate over for a delicious meal. It can be delicious whether you make, or if you pick it up from your favorite restaurant.
Getting to know someone else helps you to learn more about yourself. We are products of the information we gather from each other. Our perceptive ablities are different. So, will always learn something new from each other because each person sees the world differently.
