Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts, Peter!
I think we agree, for the most part.
I personally feel that the quickest way to create deeper connections is to share ideas with others. Obviously, one could deliver their idea in the form of a story, so this is where I see overlap in our thoughts.
I am so passionate about this method of connection with others that I started a company called Collide, with the goal of helping others create deeper connections by allowing them to share ideas. You can learn more about it here: https://www.collidewith.us
At the end of the day, I think the most I important thing is to create an environment in which people can share (ideas and stories) with each other without feeling judged.
Thank you again for sharing!
