"Three New People: Make the Most of Your Daily Interactions and Stop Missing Amazing Opportunities" is a personal success manifesto about how to create and maintain meaningful connections with the people in our lives, personally and professionally.
Fundamentally, the book is about the potential ripple effect that a single interaction can have on both of our lives. Each human interaction is an opportunity to change both of our lives for the better. If we do it often enough, we can change the world.
It focuses heavily on "perspective taking," which is the ability to see the world from the point of view of another person. Learning to bridge the gap between our perspective and the often vastly different perspectives of others is what allows up to build connections. In a world that is increasingly distracted and divisive, these connections are the cornerstone of personal and professional success.
The title is derived from the underlying theme of the book, which is the fact that you meet an average of three new people every single day. My question and challenge to the reader: What will you do with your three opportunities today?
