About lunching together (food for thought)

A friend told me this:

The word ‘company’ comes from Latin: ‘com’ means with or together; ‘panis’ means bread. So originally it referred to people sharing a meal.

That gave me a whole new meaning to the importance of lunching together

  • Walk away from work and sit down together.
  • Share your meal, your experiences, successes, failures and your ideas.
  • Talk about nothing, or be quiet.
  • Get to know and understand each other better.
  • Get up energized and eager to create some cool stuff.

The best conversations almost always happen over a meal.
