All of this running around seems to be affecting the way we perform at work, home, in social environments and in our personal lives.
Here lately, I've really been doing a lot of observing. I haven't figured out what has caused this but in the midst of it all I begin to wonder if anyone else is paying attention.
I will start by saying that my biggest crutch is my cell phone. I find myself holding face to face conversations while staring at the bright screen on my cell. I mean I call it multitasking when in all reality it's rude. I'm basically letting that person know my phone and whoever it is I'm talking to is more important. That's not really fair, is it?
While driving, I've also noticed how hard it is for some people to let a person out of a side street onto a main road while sitting in traffic. How about a person trying to switch lanes, forget about it. Are we all in that big of a hurry we can't help another person out and let them cut in line?
It comes down to common courtesy. How would you want someone to treat you? Can you make time for others? Put the multitasking on hold and enjoy the ones around you?
We teach our little ones manners and we preach to them right from wrong but if we aren't leading by example then what is the point.
A kind gesture and positive attitude can move mountains. Let me leave you with this one question....
