I used to think that our phones were making us antisocial.
Go on a train or walk into a room with lots of folks and you’ll see almost everyone trained on their screens.
This is so disheartening. And so common.
But then I see pics of folks 50-100 years ago going off to work or waiting in line, each with a newspaper open before them.
No conversation. No connection.
Times, they really haven’t been a ‘changin.
Making real connections isn’t hard. But it does take effort, especially if the person next to you is glued to a screen.
Say hello. Get curious. Listen deeply.
That’s all it takes.
Especially today, you’ll make people feel like a million bucks.
And you’ll open up whole new relationships.
