Human Being vs Human Doing
Are you focused on your work so much that you don't have time to connect with others in your workplace?
I can relate to this, I get so focused on what I am doing that people can walk up behind me and I don't even know they are there. They may start to ask a question and I have to totally turn off what I am doing in order to hear what they are saying. i am not a multi-tasker. I tend to focus on one thing at a time. Just ask my wife.
I can easily be so focused on doing that I have to be reminded to also BE. Being present and listening with curiosity has helped me to engage with people. I call this active listening.
Are you a human doing or a human being?
