Career Exercise:

As a self-development exercise, group rule today is ask a stranger to retrieve your drink. "This rule forced (in a playful way) people to interact with people they don't know. The rule took something most people wanted (a drink) and tied it to something that can be awkward initially: approaching someone you don't know." —Priyah Parker.
