How Do You Connect?
Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - Joe Kiedinger
Do you ever stop and think about how this fast-paced world affects our relationships? With more and more types of technology competing for our attention (Pinterest, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, email, etc.) our minds need to process more information in less time.
Tune in to how much time you spend using technology this week and how much time you spend face-to-face. It’s easy to forget the legitimate need of actual face time of those around us or underestimate their importance when we’re distracted by other things. It’s also much easier to get a pulse on what’s really happening when you regularly talk in person rather than just online.
ACTION PLAN: When someone approaches you this week, look up from your phone, iPad, or computer and tune in to them. You’ll discover there’s a real difference in connecting!
