Listen To Life
Dr. Joey Faucette
Listen To Life

Do you have wandering eyes?    

    You’re sitting in a restaurant in an end-of-the-aisle booth.  Your back is to the front of the establishment.  The person sitting across from you has a view of the dining room.  You have only the person in front of you to look at; there’s even a large petition behind her, separating you from the kitchen.

    You’re enjoying your conversation with your friend, but occasionally her eyes dart off to the side and she looks with anticipation at some person moving to a table.  You see the anticipation as one of those “Do I know this person?” looks. 

    “No problem,” you think.

    But then it happens again.  And again.  And again.  And pretty soon you find yourself leaning out into the aisle just to catch your friend’s eyes. 

    Do you think your friend’s glad to be with you?  And really enjoying your conversation?

    Probably not.  So the next time you’re with someone, listen with your eyes.  Pay attention to what’s really important so you can achieve your Work Positive lifestyle.
