The Power of Serendipity and Networking

Meeting new people gets you out of your own head. It’s a good way to get outside perspective on your projects and look at them in new ways. A conversation with someone who works in a completely different field could spark the idea that changes your company. Focus on meeting people who share your values and interests, and make networking part of your daily habits.
