Meeting people is easy because you meet people every time you step outside. You see people on the daily routine to and from home. You greet the neighbor, jog at the park, go to the store and do plenty of other activities.
Along the way, there are some people you see almost every day, and others who you have never seen before. If you run into a familiar stranger, get to know the person’s name. It takes only one minute to start a brief conversation. Engaging in small talk does not mean that you have to become best friends with the person. But you may find out that you two have a few things in common. And that could be a good start.
