My Favorite Tip of the Month
Anita Sharpe on Business

Too often I find myself having lunch or coffee with someone I have met before and asking them questions I know we have previously covered but I have forgotten: what part of town they live in, how many kids they have, people we know in common, etc.

But a tip I borrowed from Spencer Stuart star headhunter Jim Citrin has largely cured me of this and produced unexpected benefits. Citrin, quoted in the June issue of Fast Company magazine, said that after meeting someone, he makes a note in his journal about what makes them special (it's an idea he picked up from reading the bio of John Adams.)

Since starting this practice myself (admittedly just a couple weeks ago), I have been able to draw connections between people -- special interests, other friends in common, etc. -- that otherwise would have disappeared into some unretrievable part of my hippocampus. It has made me a slightly better lunch companion and produced some good stories for our upcoming magazine.

Thanks, Jim, and John Adams.
