Dwell In The Present
How present are you with your family and friends? When you are sitting at the dinner table, are you present or absent? At a conference, are you present or absent? When you watch your child play sport from the sidelines, are you present or absent? It is such a profound question to have at the front of your mind. It reminds us to be in the moment, work on what matters, be our best, and contribute to the here and now. Often when I work one-to-one with people on the phone, their mind is absent. You can hear them doing something else or feel when they are distracted and checking email. You often see people in meetings and conferences not present; instead, they check their social feed and read emails. To be in the moment and truly present will change your ability to be disciplined, focused, and get more done. You will be more interesting to be around, and ultimately attract more love from those around you when they know you are present in their world. Quite often it’s not just what’s being said, it’s what’s not being said - and that you can only pick up when you are present. © GB
