brainstorm on new ideas
Yesterday, I met with my Hungarian-Canadian friend Peter, most commonly referred to as Kovacs (pronounce KO-VATSH).
I met him through a Meetup group he created in the San Francisco Bay Area where he lives.
I loved the name of Peters’ group: Accents are sexy.
I said it all: accents, external signs of an international background and a pioneer mind. People worth meeting.
Since then, Peter and I have been friends.
He works on tons of projects and has an undefinable job and area of expertise. He describes himself as an entrepreneur, an advisor and a connector.
I love talking to him and sharing my ideas because I know his questions will help me clarify my thoughts, question my convictions and grow faster.
Last time we spoke was on Skype, right after I started The Self-Care Journey. He recommended a lots of readings for me and shared ideas to help me go through the journey.
Yesterday, he was in NYC, for the purpose of a globe trotters’ conference and we met in my neighborhood for coffee.
Again, we talked about our projects.
After a 2-hour break, the two of us went back to our lives with new perspectives and inputs to process.
Sharing ideas and brainstorming with a friend: a great way to move forward and grow.
Next coffee in the Bay Area, Peter?
WHY IS IT SELF-CARE? Sharing ideas, brainstorming about our projects helps us clarify our thoughts, get different perspectives, and go faster in the accomplishment of our projects. It’s also stimulating. A great way to get a fulfilling life.
MORE ABOUT THIS
For those who are not familiar with the concept, Meetup is a platform where you can find people who share the same interests as yours in your geographical area.
There are Meetups for almost everything: hiking, German speakers, yoga, entrepreneurs, coders, LGBT…
It’s a great way to meet people, engage in conversations, especially when you move to a new area and you don’t have friends or a network yet.
I’ve met really cool people through their site.
