Eight Minute Call
☎️ Call someone you love, miss, and wish you connected with more often
Text and propose an eight minute phone call — ideally today, or sometime this week. Copy & paste the following:
Hi! This Happy Habit made me think of you. Want to schedule an eight-minute phone call this week?
Most busy people tend to think that in some unspecified future, they’ll have a ‘time surplus,’ where they’ll be able to connect with old friends. However, this may never materialise, so pick up the phone and invest the time right now.
