Tips worth sharing #1 -Communication

Recently I found myself in one of YouTube’s recommended videos and it was titled “300 days alone - the movie”. Its how Olivier Vittel challenged himself to survive 300 days alone on an island, and it felt a lot like watching Cast Away.

Living alone has a huge toll on you, and its hard to find motivation to do anything because there is no one to share it with. During the video Olivier says “It’s hard not being able to talk to anyone, because you end up talking to yourself; and you always agree with yourself". I don’t know about you but I could really relate to that on many levels, especially with Covid-19 happening all over the world. It’s been a lot more difficult to network and socialize.

By limiting our mindset we are limiting our growth. We can learn and absorb so much more information from the people around us.

This was a nice reminder for me to reach out more often. Sometimes we can find ourselves in a loop, and the longer we stay in that loop the harder it is to get out. It’s reminders like this that suddenly hit you and opens up your eyes. We shouldn’t allow ourselves to limit our ideas and mindset. Luckily in our generation there are multiple tools out there to reach out to friends and family. With the pandemic we should find new ways to reach out and speak out.

We learn, we share, and we grow. So if you needed that reminder maybe watch that video, or remember “We learn, we share, and we grow.”
