Listen … shhhh!

shhpicI know everyone is exceptionally busy trying to catch up on their ‘to do’ lists and email overload. Don’t worry … I have some suggestions on how to deal with email clutter coming up.

In the interim, I have a little challenge for you today … it is a simple exercise in AWARENESS. Don’t worry – it won’t take ANY time at all!

Throughout the day, LISTEN closely for words and phrases that are used repeatedly by those around you – your family, your friends, your co-workers.

What message are they sending to you?

How do those words and phrases influence you?

Have you ever thought about those questions or the answers to them?

Some examples might be:

  • “Whatever”
  • “I’m sorry”
  • “Yeah … but …”
  • “I guess”
  • “I’ll try”
  • “Whadda ya want now?”
  • “Would you do me a favour?”

For today, simply be aware of the words. That’s it.

If you wish, post some examples here for others to see.

To your awareness…
