Are You Relevant?

Lone WolfWhat a great question to ponder – “Are you relevant?”

Before I could answer it for me, I had to look up the definition of “relevant.” It read, “closely connected to the matter at hand.”

Seems if we’re not closely connected to whomever or whatever, that makes us irrelevant. That makes sense to me.

Connection is the key to relevancy.

“How many ways are we disconnected?” is another question worth pondering in our quest to know how relevant we are.

Another way of asking that same question is: “How many areas of your life have you checked out of?” The answer to that question will give you a precise answer on your relevancy.

It seems that if you want to be more relevant, you have to check in more.

Relevancy takes some work. It’s not a gift given to us; it’s a wage that has to be earned no matter what our financial status.

Channeling my inner Oprah, here’s what I know for sure: The more I check out, the more irrelevant I become. That means that I cannot blame any notion of “woe is me” on anyone but me, especially if I stopped accepting invitations for tea.

The conversation stops being about you soon after you check out. The longer you stay there, the more irrelevant you become.

Want to be more connected, more relevant? Start checking in. It’s the key to being close at hand.

All the best,
