I flew from Newcastle to Melbourne last night and had a fantastic two-hour chat with the lady in the next seat. By the end of the journey I felt like I had a new friend. She posed three questions to me that helped us build a relationship in a very short time. Give these questions a try and I suspect you will surprised at what happens. I was.

  1. What is the best piece of advice you can give me?
  2. What has been your most profound experience?
  3. What is the greatest gift you have ever received?
