There are so many ways we receive and send information.
Sometimes it can feel like information overload.
Like we talk “at” each other, not with.
I think we’re all guilty of that at times.
Like being on the phone, but still scrolling through the computer while you’re in the conversation.
Or allowing texts and calls that really aren’t important to interrupt a face-to-face conversation – virtual or in-person.
Or saying something without realizing that it could be received completely wrong and not because of what we said, but how we said it.
Each time distractions like that happen, they are communicating a message to the recipient. They are apparent to the other person and convey that you don’t care, no matter how much you really do.
Take a minute and think about how you’ve felt when that’s happened to you?
I know I don’t like it, and I’m guessing you don’t either.
