You got on a plane.
You got an Uber.
You rented a hotel room.

You’re attending a live session (which you’ll get a recording of).
Foolish: You can sit back and be critical.
Shallow: You can stare at your phone and follow the chatter on Twitter.
Distracted: You can live-tweet.
Copy-cat: You can take notes on your laptop.
Sponge: You can listen with empty hands, and be fully present.
Connector:You can skip the session, and build a new relationship in the hall.
Just because you’re in a crowd doesn’t mean you have to follow it. Take permission.
