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.

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.
