Recently a Clerk confided her frustration to me: I can’t even provide customer service, they walk in with a phone to their ear and are oblivious that I am even here. Not too long ago when a Mom tried to talk to her 4-year daughter, the reply from the 4-year old was: Not now, I’m on the phone.  Wow, what a wake up call.  In a time when we think we are more connected than ever, the truth just might be, we are creating a world of unprecedented disconnect from those around us.   It might be time we all stop shutting people out and take a look at how relationships and lives are being distanced from one another – often from those who are most important in our life.

 Tip for managing your C-time:

-       Use good judgment. Just because you can connect, doesn’t mean you should

-       Are you using texting as an avoidance tool?

-       Need to make a work connection? Apologize to whomever you are with. Make it short.

-       Schedule C-time out of your personal time, not family time.

-       Out and about? Pack it away. BE in the moment. Stay alert to the world around you.

Life is fleeting.  Don’t miss it.
