Bienvue

There are some interesting stages in getting to know people. One of the litmus tests is how you’re introduced to others.

When you’re new, there’s almost always some justification for your presence or existence outside of being…just…well…you.

For example – “Hey guys, this is Gavin – he’s an engineer.”
Or – “Meet Cynthia, she works with Frank.”

…as if saying “There’s a really good reason this person is here, we don’t just ask random people on trains to dinner.”

You know you’ve really made it in a group when the justification has gone. When you’re just introduced as Tom or Frank or Monica.

Just an observation. Carry on.
