Do you notice how fast people are moving? They are walking on the street and driving their cars while talking on their phones and even texting. Computers, I pads, cell phones, emails, kindle……the beat goes on. When most people have coffee together or share a meal, they are often on their cell phones and computer at the same time. What is the true quality of your communication? Are you present and paying attention to people when you communicate?
Social media, facebook, twitter, post this, email that….it’s quite incredible. How did we make it before all of this technology? Question – Are you actually communicating better with all of this technology? Do you have a higher quality of life? Are you achieving more and better results? Or are you more distracted, multi-tasking and do you have a shorted attention span?
Being so busy and occupied with all of these devices does not necessarily improve the quality of your communication and relationships. Are you really connecting and spending quality time with the people in your life? Or are you too busy dealing with all this technology? How is the quality of your life and relationships? How much peace, contentment and harmony are you experiencing? How about your family and friends?
It is amazing to observe the insanity of how people are driving and behaving on the road. Have you noticed a change over the past few years? Do you see how many people are on their cell phones and texting instead of paying attention to their driving? It is so dangerous to drive and not be focused on your driving because you are busy on a cell phone. People seem more stressed and pressured and less courteous with shorter attention spans. Where is it that you are rushing to get to and will it matter how fast you get there if you hurt yourself and others on the way? Faster is not necessarily better.
Maybe it is the simple things that are truly most important. Being healthy, taking time to meditate, spending time in nature, preparing healthy meals and being with the people you care about do not require a lot of technology. Taking time to read and to learn new ideas…. improving yourself by being a better person in all areas. ….being thankful for all that you are and all that you have…….helping others.…connecting with your spiritual source……being quiet and peaceful.
The key to life is actually simple things, natural principles, one thing at a time. People come first – be kind, help one another, make a difference. The Golden Rule is very simple.
Your life and results improve when you slow down to the speed of life. How many opportunities are you missing because you are not really here? Use technology appropriately and watch your results, quality of life, communication and relationships soar.
