I find that if I don't set a schedule for networking, I end up putting it off. I've been working hard to plan an hour of networking every other month. If I force myself to plan it, I don't let it go, but if I just look at what others have planned and have to make a decision just to show up, I tend to let it slide. Doing the planning myself lets me control the setting, too, which is helpful because I don't love networking in large groups. Trying to work on that. Up until now, because I've managed group size and setting myself, I've actually enjoyed the meetings and have felt refreshed by them instead of drained. Have to figure out how to not be drained by group networking.
