Ever since reading “Never Eat Alone” by Keith Ferrazzi, I’ve spent three minutes every morning wishing “happy birthday” to everyone in my network who has a birthday.

The result is that I now keep in touch with almost everyone in my network at least once per year, regardless of the strength or depth of our relationship.

Birthdays are the perfect excuse to re-connect with people who you otherwise don’t have a reason to chat with.

Try this If you’re looking for a simple way to keep in touch and improve your relationships!

Bonus tip: on your birthday, take the opportunity to have more extended conversations with anyone who wishes you a happy birthday. It’s your day, so people will always be receptive!

I've been building digital businesses, wandering the world, and writing about optimizing life for freedom since early 2017. My mission is to lower the barrier for people who want to live with more freedom: whether that be as an entrepreneur, a digital nomad, an early retiree, or just as someone who wants to live a happiness-driven life.
