Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #084 — Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

We’re poor: time poor, attention poor, and connection poor. Sadly, for most of us, that’s the world we live in. Too many things to pay attention to (let alone to get done!) in too little time and there never seems to be enough to just be connected to the ones we love. In the opening scenes of the 2004 movie Crash, we hear “we crash into each other just so we can feel something.”

If you’ve ever worked with me or heard me speak, you’ve heard me say:

“Being listened to feels so much like being loved, people can scarcely tell the difference.”

People crave connection. There is no substitute for direct human connection. As a species, we are wired for it! And yet, how infrequently do we slow down and connect. How often do we really feel listened to? Heard? Received? Truly seen?

More importantly, how often do you stop and really listen to someone else? Hear them? Truly see them?

Who in your world longs to be listened to? By you?
