When I was an admin at Google, I noticed the top executives would spend at least one hour a week networking, no matter how busy they were.
By doing so they would: reconnect with former colleagues, meet new folks, mentor people, etc. As a result of this, they would learn new skills, build deeper bonds in their current network, share appreciation with folks who provided them with their career break (which makes both parties feel good), and set themselves up for future success.
There’s an old saying that it’s better to dig a well before you’re thirsty, and the same applies to networking.
