Caring.

I wanted to title this post:  Do you really give a damn? Do you really care about your job, your co-workers, your clients, even your family?

More and more I see people texting at meetings instead of listening.  Checking email while working on other projects.  I am just as guilty.  In the last meeting I had with a fellow co-worker, my computer beeped twice notifying me of incoming emails, my phone vibrated, and I had a brilliant idea pop in my head that distracted me from the topic at hand.  Does that really show that I care?

Two Questions That I Struggle With

  1. What does it take to give 100% to another person?
  2. What does it take to give 100% to the task at hand?

Create an environment that allows you to focus 100% on the person or the critical task.  Remove distractions.  Close your email.  Focus.

It is more than just showing you care.  A lack of focus can actually make you less efficient and even stupider.  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1046286576946413103.html

It is up to you to provide the leadership

Change happens when you make the decision to give 100% to the person or task at hand.  Decide today to cut off all other options.  The world demands 100% from you.  To fully give 100% attention is rare.  Choose to be remarkable.
