Meet a lot of people, do the work to keep up with them, good things happen.

So says Courtney, aka, my college friend’s Oklahoma friend with the church camp friend who posted about the Golden Ticket upstairs Chicago apartment for rent in his building last week. 

Good things indeed. We found our place. Even though we can’t move in until July, it’s a no-brainer: lots of room and light within our budget two blocks from a terrific school and a downstairs neighbor who is one of my people’s people. Done.

See? The people you know, all the things you do to keep up with them, they pay dividends, both for you and for people you care about. So check in on someone today whom you haven’t heard from in a minute. Send a text. Make a call. Order a gift. These are more than gestures. They’re infrastructure for all the good things wanting to happen.
