  • This makes so much sense Lori. While the world is hell bent on making more friends, network like crazy and build new relationships, the truth is we can’t push it. As per research, the Dunbar’s number (150) is the limit of even the social media friends we can have. I remember reading a case study of a startup executive that creates list of people important to him every year. And ensures spends time only with them during that year – it’s a nerdy way of dealing with challenges posed by time, but I feel it’s justifiable to prioritise this way. What do you think?

  • That’s an interesting approach! I’m all for anything that helps us honor the people who matter to us most.
