Fleeting. Everything is…

Temporary and taken for granted. Most things are… This is a universal, and can be upsetting if you dwell on it.

So, why do we take things for granted? Especially that, and those who are most important? The simple answer is because we get caught up in ourselves more than we don’t. We get tunnel vision about our own agendas, wants, and desires. Others then become secondary. Oh, we like to claim that we’re not selfish most of the time to make ourselves feel better, but it’s not really true.

I do a talk called “Tuning Into WIIFM” where I discuss communication strategies to flip this process 180 degrees. I challenge audiences to meet others’ needs first, and then by doing so, their needs get met on back-end. Sounds simple, but is difficult to implement consistently. It requires ongoing awareness and diligence to the process. It becomes a choice… moment to moment literally. Choose selflessness. It’s the nice thing to do, and it’s the right thing to do.

Stay tuned-in…
