We’ll meet nearly 80,000 people in our lives. I know, because I’ve just heard it in an advert.
It doesn’t seem possible – 80,000. That’s a lot of names to remember, or forget, depending on how it works out.
Measured against the Christmas cards sent, the Facebook friends, the fellas at the Legion, old school friends, sort of neighbours past and present and however many colleagues from however many careers people have these days, 80,000 still seems like a stretch.
Unless we’re talking about people to smile at on the bus, that’s a huge figure. Actually meeting these people in real life may take a properly thought out Strategy
Probably best to start with a simple greeting.
