Chapter 17. Connect at Conventions > Later On, Get Reinspired

Later On, Get Reinspired

Finally, six months later, take out your notes and reread them. Choose a rotten, rainy Monday morning for this exercise. You'll find that all the ideas and enthusiasm and inspiration you felt while you were at the convention will come flooding back. That's what a convention is for: to give you ideas and to stimulate you. William James, the psychologist, was talking once about the time it takes for the unconscious to incubate ideas. He said, "We learn to swim in the winter and skate in the summer." You may find that ideas from the conference have now incubated and are ready to be hatched.

Also at this six-month point, send notes to some of the people you talked with at the convention. Ask them if they are going to be attending the next one. Keep in touch with your contacts. Put them on your holiday card list. That will make going to the next conference much easier: You'll be looking forward to seeing valuable business contacts, not strangers.
