Yesterday, I got a request from a contact to be connected on LinkedIn. I accepted the connection and then was taken to the LinkedIn site where I shown a lot of people that I possibly knew. For some reason, I went through the list and added some connections. A colleague of mine that I haven’t seen nor contacted for at least 8 years actually responded to my connection request with a thoughtful response. That had never happened before but I thought it was really nice to hear from him.
That is something that I will remember and perhaps pay it forward the next time I get a connection request on LinkedIn. At least if I know the person.
