Welcome to the Five Minute Friday! Set the timer for 5 minutes and share on the site.
I am always striving to be a better person by learning something new or to deepen the knowledge I already have.
Lifelong learning is a component of my work life, but it is not just something that sounds great in an interview – it is a fundamental belief of mine. One that I share with others. So, being better is part of making other people’s lives better as well. This encompasses committing to becoming better at connecting with people which requires vulnerability on my part and being less judgmental. All of these factors lead to better listening. What listening looks like to me is paying attention, not thinking something else, and being present in the moment.
But isn’t that what life is all about? Being better?
Better just doesn’t happen on its own – there has to be a plan. You can’t just miracle it! Questions, reflection, writing, meditation, and journaling are all part of the process.
