Read here for a short but good article about how technology today is demanding lots (too much) of our attention. Instead of helping us to connect with others, technology can distract or block us from making real connection.
Nice quote from Daniel Goleman. "The social brain is in its natural habitat when we're talking with someone face-to-face in real time. It's picking up information that it wants in the moment. It's reading prosody in voice, emotions, and nonverbal cues. And it's doing it invisibly, doing it constantly, out of our awareness - and then telling us what to do next to keep things smooth and on track."
His suggestion is to take some time to reflect and to focus on how we connect (and communicate). Then we can be more mindful about what and how we connect with others.
Do you think his suggestion will help to connect better with others?
