Started Planning CONNECT! 2011

It's so easy to communicate. I can see what friends are up to in Utah, Texas, and Chile in a matter of minutes. I can look at pictures from a party that an old roommate attended. I can see who's married, who's having kids, and whose favorite TV show is Seinfeld. The problem is that communication is becoming so efficient that we're getting lazy and losing the subtle joys of a handwritten letter or a conversation with friends over dinner. Emails have their place. Facebook has its place. Texts have their place. Blogs have their place. None of them; however, should replace meaningful personal communication. It's time to connect again! That's the point of CONNECT! 2011.

CONNECT! 2011 is a program that is completely free and open for anyone to participate in. It involves four goals related to rebuilding connections with friends, family, and your community. Anyone who completes all four goals in the month of January and sends me a Facebook message or email telling me what they enjoyed about the experience, will be entered to win a little prize. Sorry Becca, while you're encouraged to participate, we will be excluded from the drawing.

Anyway, I'm really excited about getting this going. Mark you calendars for December 15th when I'll be releasing all the details about the program. If you haven't already, you should "like" the Vaughn Life Coaching fan page on Facebook. I plan on making it the main hub for CONNECT! 2011 when it starts. It will be a place for people to ask questions, share ideas, and brag about success.
