This past weekend I was reminded of the power of sports to connect people. I spent the weekend with these two guys playing golf. One, a very good friend of mine from Washington, DC. The other a brand new acquaintance. In both cases, the shared activity of golf set a great foundation for brief but good conversations, but, more importantly, set the stage for deeper and more lengthy conversations around the meals we had together around the golf. These wouldn't have happened if we only shared the meals or if we had only played golf. The combination brought the depth in a short period of time. If you are involved in sports, rec, or fitness, use that involvement as a springboard for other times together. The combination is a powerful one!!!
