Today’s Challenge – Ask Yourself: “How can I put myself into high-interest gear the next time I feel I’m zoning out?”
My Czech grandmother used to say, “Honey, if your job’s sweepin’ floors, sweep ‘em good.” Kelli S.Vrla, CSP
Your mind actually tells your body whether it’s worth it to energize for stimulus coming your way. When, in your mind, you know something is going to be interesting, your body follows suit and begins to exhibit traits of being interested: eye contact, active listening, repeating key words, asking questions—basic curiosity about the subject at hand. The mind is amazingly powerful in the energy-boosting zone. Use it to your advantage.
