It wasn’t until recently that I really understood the power of Happy Hour (HH). HH brings people together who may or may not have ever found a connection otherwise. I think that while it might be trendy to hit up a happy hour, or stop by on your way home, you never really expect to discover all that you do. I have had three happy hours in the past few weeks, one with a great girlfriend and the other two with a small group of friends and each time I have been truly amazed!
Ties are harder to come by at work or in more structured situation but maybe over HH you can discover connections that would have otherwise gone unrecognized. Have a drink, toast to others, see what you can learn… “everything happens for a reason”. Kampai!
