Instructions for "The Gift of Attention":
For at least one interaction or conversation you have with someone each day this week, set your intention to give them your full attention. Here are some tips to help you:
We all know how good it feels to have someone be present and really hear us, but in this busy world it's a rare thing. My clients often comment on the benefit they feel from just being listened to, and I feel a benefit too, as I get to switch off from my own stories, and connect with another person.
This week, try to slow down and give someone your attention (be it the shopkeeper or your spouse), and see how it's a gift for both of you.
"One of the greatest gifts you can give to anyone is the gift of attention." - Jim Rohn
