Today, I realized where the newest “Hard Thing” is for me: Communication. Keeping in touch with everyone you know is actually a pretty arduous task. If you know 430 people from various work environs, schools, training seminars, neighbors, friends, friends of friends, and family, etc., that is 430 people that you need to contact at least quarterly (per Manager-Tools).

Family, good friends and neighbors, I think should be contacted more frequently (monthly). With that, the math is easy, but difficult to execute. Say for example 50 good friends, neighbors and family. 400 / 120 (quarterly) * 30 (monthly) = 100 people/month. Add in the 50 that you want to communicate with monthly and it’s 150 per month. 5 people per day. Make that 6! You want to communicate with your spouse/significant other daily!

Now it’s getting tough, but we want, and increasingly NEED to be the royalty of communication.
