A great friend got me a subscription to Success Magazine as a Christmas present...
And every month I wait for it to hit my mailbox.
I am always so excited for the little bonus CD they include
This month, Darren Hardy talks about Communicating vs. Connecting
And it totally hit home
I communicate alot
I have email, Facebook, internet everything on my phone
I get hundreds of emails a week
I communicate with my friends and family
in person, on the phone
I skype with family from all over the world
I attend meetings
I have coffee with friends
I chat with my girls when I pick them up from school
I communicate all day long...
But am I Connecting?
So I am giving myself this little assignment...
No more multi-tasking while communicating
No emailing while I am on the phone (unless I am on hold with the cable company)
No making mental to-do lists while talking to someone
I will make a genuine effort to connect with every interaction I have
This will be no easy task in a world that is flooded with a million ways
to distract yourself!
Enjoy your Tuesday!
