There’s a video of Craig Ferguson I’ve been thinking about a lot lately.
It’s his answer to: “How can I as a young man be better at talking to women?”
But I think it applies to all facets of life: making friends, being a great communicator, or building relationships in general.
Treat every single human being with the same amount of love, respect, and honesty. It doesn’t matter what their sex, race, job, weight, or age is.
Be curious about people. Exchange stories. Ask questions. Try to build something together.
“Friendship happens on the way to something else. If you “try to meet new people” it feels weird and forced. The more you aim for friendship, the more it eludes you. But if you aim to learn or achieve something with others, friendship happens naturally during the shared pursuit.”James Clear
