Remember them. Have a grasp of their body of work, not just the latest pin or share — they are not even the tip of the iceberg — respect their history, where they're coming from, appreciate their way of looking at the world.

Ask for their take on issues and listen, reach out for no other reason than to catch up on their lives, what they're working on. Offer a helping hand generously, everyone goes through their moments.

If you really want to touch someone… be human.

A GPS-enabled tool can get you from point A to point B — it's not going to tell you why you want to go there, and will not keep you company along the way.
