Successful Habit #4: Invitation 

30 CEOs Reveal the Daily Habits Responsible for Their Success by CHRISTINA DESMARAIS

Accept invitations to as many meetings and events as possible.

“You never know who you will meet or the advice you’ll receive.”

–Liat Zakay, founder and CEO of Donde Fashion, a visual search engine that allows users to shop from more than 6,000 brands and over 1 million products.

This needs to be extended by going to meetings beyond your usual self. When the same meeting is attended month after month & into year after year, the content becomes stale as the cycles typically repeat into repetitiveness.

Find new topics by researching local businesses publications for print & online meeting announcements. Then commit to going to at least three meetings. This will give you familiarity with the flow & become more of a recognized face. Bring business cards & reach out, introduce your self, and ask questions. After the meeting, email a thank you note to the sponsors & organizers.  An expression of gratitude is always welcome. Then go onto LinkedIN to reaffirm the connections made. Doing this over time will expand your access to fresh & refreshed ideas, thinking & perspective.
