This simple action has done so much for my relationships, my networking, and my career. I wish I followed it better, because every time I meet someone for lunch, get coffee with a friend or take the time to eat dinner together with my spouse, I always enjoy it.
Eating with other people doesn't have to be expensive, either. Bring lunches and meet in a park or the break room. And don't be shy about asking your boss, vice-president or CEO, either. Everybody eats!
