One greatest gifts you can give another human being is your undivided attention. Put down the phone and take the time to be fully present. Two things will occur. You will be calmer and less distracted, and the other person will feel truly heard and appreciated. Good stuff all around. By product? If you find yourself interviewing for a job or on a date, you will score many points for being so focused.
“Today, I will choose to be present and focused.”
